She threw in two mites, which make a farthing. — Mark 12:42

It is not the size of our achievement, as men see it, that makes its real value. A seed is a small thing, but it has in it a mysterious germ, and wherever it may fall it will grow into a beautiful thing. A secret lies hidden in many a quiet word or deed; it carries in it a germ of divine life.

“What can I do today?
Not praise to win, or glory to attain;
Not gold, or ease, or power, or love to gain,
Or pleasure gay;
But to impart
Joy to some stricken heart;
To send some heaven–born ray
Of hope, some sad, despairing
Soul to cheer;
To lift some weighting doubt;
Make truth more clear;
Dispel some dwarfing fear;
To lull some pain;
Bring to the fold again
Some lamb astray;
To brighten life for some one,
Now and here,
This let me do today.”
