A Woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
Insight: This woman had an opportunity to encounter Jesus and when she did she chose to take something very valuable and used it to show honor to Jesus. It was a tremendous sacrifice for her and a situation where she chose to do something others might look at as strange (and they did). Although Jesus is not at the table eating dinner in my house I do have the opportunity to have him in my life and I should aspire to the same level of worship and sacrifice for him.
Prayer: Jesus, I do not want to take for granted any second I have in your presence. I pray that my life would be an offering to you.
