Bible Story Reference: Mark 12:41-44
Psalm 100:2 (NIV)
“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.”
One day Jesus was sitting with His disciples in the Temple, watching the people who were bringing their offerings. Back then people took their offerings to the Temple court and dropped them into the collection boxes.
Many rich people lived in Jerusalem. They lived in nice houses. They wore nice clothes. They had plenty to eat. After they had paid for their nice houses and nice clothes and good food, they would take some of the money left over and give it as an offering at the Temple.
Dressed in their finest clothes, they went to the Temple when they knew a lot of people would be there. They would look around to be sure people were watching. Then they would pour their money into the collection box.
