15/5 Challenge Day 19

John 12:7-8 

“Leave her alone, “Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” 

Without going into great detail, the perfume that this verse is talking about was very expensive! This woman wanted to give Jesus her very best. Some scoffers thought the woman wasn’t being frugal and should have helped the poor instead of lavishly love on Jesus with the expensive perfume. They thought that helping the poor was a bigger and better act of service to display to Jesus. But that wasn’t the case! Jesus looked at her gift for what it was. She was giving him all she had. He was worth that and more to her, and that is what she wanted to show her God!

This Scripture is absolutely beautiful. It begs the question though… what is your best for Jesus?

Praying for you today, friend!

If you ask me over for any type of tea you have spoken directly to my heart! I love the ocean and sitting down to a good book is my favorite (unless I fall asleep 2 pages in like usual....I have 4 kids, remember?!). I love Jesus and hope that anything I write displays his unending & unconditional love toward me and YOU!
