A modern-day example of sacrificial giving is told by Wilson Siazilo, Namwianga’s Food Relief Coordinator: I have read the story of the poor widow from Luke 21. Little did I ever think there are people doing that today. One Sunday I visited a church with the idea of assessing the hunger situation. The area was already starving badly. To my astonishment, two old women who are probably widows dropped two cobs of maize each into the contribution basket. That was pulled from the last few cobs they had. Another old man who earns his living by selling carvings brought two cooking sticks he had made. I realize that his gift was a great commitment to the Lord.
