“…It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.” John 12:7*
Did Mary have any clue that the perfume she owned was intended to anoint the Lord? What motivated her to pour it on His feet? Her gesture was nothing short of beautiful.
I can only hope that I would be so ready and willing to let go of my valuable possessions if the Lord needed them for His purposes.
When it’s time to let go
of expensive perfumes—
collecting dust on the shelf.
Find my heart willing
to pour them all out
at the feet of Jesus—
for purposes beyond self.
