“This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.” (Matthew 26v9 NIV)
They could only see monetary value in what she had.
To Jesus it was an act of love and devotion.
Don’t let money be your measure.
Love should be the driving force that motivates you.
Don’t even be driven by need.
There is always more need than you can possibly meet.
Look to Him who is the solution to your deepest needs.
He is also their salvation not just yours.
The question is: what do you value the most?
The need to work to earn money to live is all consuming.
Give a thought to what the Creator wants and let Him supply your need.
Seek Him first before anything else.
What would you do if money was no object?
What would you attempt if you couldn’t fail?
You are free to serve Him no matter what.
Let everything you have be His.
Even your energy.
Let Him be your devotion.
