Have you ever bought something and paid too much?

Did you buy this coveted item on credit or with-draw the money from savings?

Was it shoes, a purse, a fishing pole, an ATV or a big screen TV?

Mark 14: 3 (NIV)   While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head. 

Mary poured an expensive jar of perfume on Jesus. She showered her affection in the only way she knew how to. Isn’t that the human way?

When we love another, we want to “show” our affection. We say too much or we try to say the right thing or we try to “buy” affection or try to “do” something; trying to prove our love.

Jesus doesn’t want us to prove anything to Him. We don’t need to show, say, buy or do.

Jesus just wants us to do one thing.

He wants our Worship.

Perfume your Worship with Love and Praise

Mark 14: 6 (NIV)     Leave her alone,” said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.
