I’m reminded of Matthew 26:6-13 the passage that tells about the woman with the alabaster box. I would like you to ponder these verses during the Christmas season.
Jesus saw that the woman did not give out of her “extras.” She gave from the depths of her faith that God would provide! I conclude by saying, Jesus said, “wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.” He sees what we give but, what blesses the Lord is “why” we give!
