Like the story in chapter 19, Jesus again teaches that He expects us to use what He has given us for His glory. The widow wasn’t given very much, but she gave it to God. Jesus then begins to tell of what will happen after His death. Some of His predictions refer to the destruction of Jerusalem that occurred about 40 years later and others refer to the time before Jesus returns. In both, He predicts dark times ahead.

Although we are challenged to give our best to God, we must also realize that, in the end, it will take Christ’s return to make everything right. That is not to discourage us from working hard for God; we should always do what God says. But, the outcome is in God’s hands.
