Jesus was in Bethany. He was eating in the house of Simon the leper. While Jesus was there a woman came to him. The woman had an alabaster jar filled with very expensive perfume. This perfume was made of pure nard. The woman opened the jar and poured the perfume on Jesus’ head.
— Mark 14:3 ERV (Read Full Text)
Mark moves us from a scene of some of the worst of human motivations against Jesus (verses 1-2) to this scene—one of the most precious stories of love and appreciation for Jesus we find in the Gospels. This woman’s expensive sacrifice prepares both Jesus and us for his sacrifice which lies ahead.
O Father, may my life be a fragrant sacrifice of praise to you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
