Love Jesus Extravagantly!

Matthew 26

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, 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.
When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,[a] but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.

What appeared as Beautiful in the eyes of Jesus appeared  as Waste to Jesus's Disciples. Are you very critical and judgmental in the way others worship Jesus? Does their worship appear as Waste to you? 

Stop critizing. May be its time to Break your Expensive Alabaster Jar and Love Jesus Extravagantly!!

 And Jesus said "what she has done will also be told, in memory of HER". Wherever God's love for people was told, Jesus promised that Her love for God would be told.
