Can you imagine?
Sitting with Him. Eating with Him. Touching Him.
What would it have been like to have been with Jesus when His feet touched soil?
Can you imagine...
“... a woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at the table.”
I think of this woman in her home, preparing to go to Jesus. I wonder... was she nervous? Did she question herself?
I imagine her as passionate and bold, never thinking twice. I imagine that she rushed from her home, clutching her gift with thoughts only of Jesus. Her honoring, extravagant gift.
But I don’t know.
What I do know is that she lavished it all upon Him, crowned him with her offering.
None held back.
Would I have done it?....
I'm guest posting at SomeGirl's Website again today, sharing my thoughts as I finish reading Matthew. To read the rest of What is your alabaster jar? please come over and join us there!
