2 Mites Website

Mark 12:41 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 his disciples to him, and said to them, "Truly I say to you, that this poor widow has cast more in, than all they who 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".

The value of a mite or a lepta (a small copper coin pictured here) is of very small value. Based on the penny or denarius a day labourers wage parable (Matthew 20:2) , a mite was half a quadron (Mark 12:42), there are 64 quadrons to a denarius (Augustan Values) so 2 mites is 1/64th of a days wage. Considering that the labouring day was 12 hours, 1/64 of 12 hours is 11.25 minutes work. In New Zealand at $14.00 per hour this equates to about $2.60 (less tax) about equivalent to one loaf of bread. (ref- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_coins)

The two mites web site is an encouragement to share your 2 mites, your experience, your revelation, your hope and your faith with other people -no matter how insignificant you think it is.

Philemon 1:3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith, which you have toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; that the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Being vulnerable, stepping outside the comfort zone, acknowledging the working of God in your life, may be hard a first, but God will bless your efforts, as you sanctify Him to others. So throw your pieces into the treasury... you do not know what God will do with them!
