“Giving God Our Best”

Matthew 26:6-13, {6} While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, {7} 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. {8} When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. {9} “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, 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.”
