Good Enough: The House Was Filled with the Fragrance – Promise Road Campus
“Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.” (John 12:3b) – The mindset of abundance will outshine the mindset of scarcity. It’s all in how we look at what is happening and of what we are a part. Mary understood who Jesus was and was anointing him for his impending burial. The “cost” of the ointment was in the anointing. Judas objected, concerned with the expense of the ointment Mary was using to bathe his feet. Yet Jesus defended the extravagance. Jesus supported the anointing. Mary’s anointing of Jesus’ feet with her hair shouts of her abundant love and the fragrance of love’s actions can be carried on the wind to places we may never see.
