Mary’s Fragrant Gift
A story of love.
The love of Martha: that she would serve Jesus.
The love of Mary: that she would expend costly nard to anoint Jesus feet.
The love for Lazarus: that Jesus had for him, and the life that was given back to him, at great cost to Jesus, even as the authorities sought to destroy him.
The love of Christ: that he would die for us.
And the hate of Judas Iscariot: who sought even then to rob his brothers and to betray Jesus.
