Scripture Sunday - Widow's Mite

I absolutely love this passage although it challenges me each time I read it.  Am I giving sacrificially?  What is the condition of my heart as I give?

Mark 12:40-44 (New International Version)

40They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."
The Widow's Offering
 41Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins,[a]worth only a fraction of a penny.[b]  43Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on."
