A Gift of Love

A Gift of Love

Mary’s anointing of Jesus’ feet was a precious gift that ministered to Jesus in the final days as He approached the cross. Though others did not understand what she was doing, Jesus knew. He knew that her sacrifice reflected her love for Him, just as His coming sacrifice would flow from His love for us. He received her anointing as the gift of love that it was. How do you express your love for Jesus?

Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. — John 12:3

Prayer: Jesus, You mean the world to me. How can I express my love for you today? Who can I serve as if they were You? Let my love for You prompt my words and actions toward others. Make me a blessing today, I pray in Your name. Amen.
