A few days before Jesus was crucified, Mary (Martha and Lazarus’ sister) poured expensive perfume on him and wiped his feet with her hair.
Judas, who would betray Jesus, criticized her, saying she should have sold the perfume and given the money to the poor. (Judas didn’t care about the poor. He was a thief and used to steal from the group money bag.).
Jesus said, “Let her alone” because she had saved the perfume for his burial.
This perfume may have been Mary’s most valuable possession. How do you think her action affected Jesus?
Coffee/tea thought: If I wanted to offer my most valuable possession to Jesus, what might it be?
