There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment wasted like that?
People thought that the woman’s expensive sacrifice was a waste.
We learn in this story that no matter how much is given; time, energy, money, stuff, it is never wasted on Jesus.
A couple reasons…
-Jesus is worthy of everything because of who He is.
-Jesus is worthy because what he has done. For the woman, He raised her brother and gave her a new life. For us, he rose again and have us a new life.
We can never give too much of anything to honor and worship Jesus. Not everyone will understand, but it doesn’t matter. We should give anyway.
Jesus, my time, relationships, money and stuff are yours. You deserve it for who you are and what you’ve done.
