Jesus has show us – by his life, and by his suffering, death and resurrection – what it means to give. True giving, inspired by Christ is generous and unconditional. This is not as easy to achieve as it sounds. Our gospel today invites us to reflect on what kind of giver we are – a grudge giver, a duty giver, or a ‘thanks’ giver. Just as the widow in the gospel gave all that she had, in complete confidence in God, we are called to be givers who truly give from the heart, giving of ourselves as faithful stewards of God’s abundant gifts.
