He Sees

She had probably passed by the treasury hundreds of times.

Quietly giving … never drawing attention to herself.

Likely invisible to those around her.

But she was not invisible to Him!


Why was Jesus there at that exact moment?

How did He know that she had given everything she had?


In my church calling, I often have the great privilege of giving priesthood blessings.

So often in those blessings I feel impressed to try to covey …

How very aware the Lord is of the individual.

“He sees you …”

“He knows you …”

“He hears your prayers …”

“He knows the fears and worries of you’re heart.”

“He’s knows the sacrifices and choices you are making.”

“He’s so very grateful for all you are striving to do to love and serve Him.”


Words such as these are often brought to mind.

And I try my best to imperfectly convey the feelings of love that accompany them.


We all have times when we may ask …

“Don’t you understand what I’m going through?”

“Do you see what I’m sacrificing?”

“Do you even see me at all?”


No matter what we are passing through …

at least one of the lessons we learn from the widow’s mites is is …

He sees us

He knows us

He knows our hearts

He knows our sacrifices

He knows our struggles

and we are not invisible to Him!


“And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

“And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.

“And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:

“For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.”

– Mark 12:41-44
