“She has done, what she could.
She has come beforehand
to anoint My body for burial.”
Mark 14 : 8
The night before the “Triumphal entry”-
Jesus attended a feast at the house of Simon.
A leaper- healed earlier by Jesus.
It was on this occasion that Mary Magdalene
broke a box of alabaster and anointed
Jesus with this costly ointment.
And dries his feet with her hair.
Others who were there criticized her,
but Jesus defended her saying –
“Wherever this gospel is preached
throughout the world,
what this woman did will be spoken
of as a memorial to her.”
Mark 14 : 9
Why did Jesus give such emphasis to her deed?
Why did He say to-“tell about it everywhere”?-
1. She was a sinner who had been forgiven by Jesus.
2. She loved her Savior.
3. She put her love into action.
4. She had a sense of urgency.
5. And she did what she could.
Every one has Spiritual ‘gifts’ – given by God –
to be used in service for others.
We cannot all do the same things-
as we have different gifts.
But we all can do something!
If we all used our “gifts’- to help others-
think what would happen.
May He also say to us- that we did what we could.
Have a Blessed SABBATH.
