It may be easy to give up than to keep going; It may be easy to say it's someone else' fault than to take the blame yourself; It may be easier to make excuses than to offer apologies. But there is NO Guarantee that the EASY Way through life is the Best Way. Don't be so concerned about finding the easiest roads to travel but follow the roads that lead you to become the person you really want to be.

Three lessons for disciples in the story of the simple, the pious and the widow;
1. Proportional Giving:
Jesus is teaching us that how much we give is related to how much we have.
2. Sacrificial Giving:
God is watching when we make sacrifices. It does not matter if no one else sees/knows it.
3. Faith-filled Giving:
Bigger is not always better. We are to give what we are able, whether small or big.
Be generous always. Be good and be kind.
