They say no good deed goes unpunished. That was certainly true of Mary's good deed done to Jesus. I have noticed we are very keen at counting the things we value, and yet completely miss the true value the Lord places on what He calls important. Jesus previously pointed out to the disciples in the temple courtyard the greatness of the widow’s glad gift of all her copper mites, when compared to all that was given by the rich with fanfare. Even after all the teaching by Jesus about serving and humility, not one of the disciples challenged Mary’s washing the feet of Jesus with her hair. They only challenged the extravagance of her act of love that used such a valuable gift on Jesus.
Join us Sunday morning as we continue our study of the Gospel of Mark and "Working Like the Devil, Serving the Lord" from Mark 14 verses 1 to 11.
