Most importantly, are we in a close loving relationship with Jesus…..is our life laid at His feet, are we broken open for Him and pouring ourselves out to Him, anointing Him now with the fragrant ointment of our gratitude, love and entire being?
“But remember, we are dealing here with something which the Lord said was to go out with the Gospel, wherever that Gospel should be carried. Why? Because he intends that the preaching of the Gospel should issue something along the very lines of the action of Mary here, namely, that people should come to him and waste themselves on him. This is the result that he is seeking.”

But Jesus said, “Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me….”She has done what she could; she has anointed My body beforehand.”….Mark14:6,8
