This story is just like the one from the New Testament when the poor woman gives her one coin - it is all she has. Both women are giving without thought of themselves. It is also like the story of the rich man and the difficulty of entering heaven. It is more difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven that for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. The more we have the harder it is to give up our attachment to it. I can relate to how much easier it was for me as a young college student, when I had so little, to donate all I had available to help others.
