John 12:1-11

February 18, 2015

In today’s qt, Mary gives extravagantly to Jesus putting all of her most valuable perfume on his feet with her hair, while Judas tries to scold her claiming it’s a waste while claiming that that perfume could be sold and the money given to the poor. However, Judas really was just upset that he couldn’t do in faith what Mary was doing in faith, and had his focus on the money, rather than Jesus.

I look at my life, and I’d certainly like to think that I’m not like Judas, and that I’m more like Mary, but that probably isn’t true. There is both Judas side and Mary side in me, and most of the time, Judas side is more dominant. Judas side is always calculating, going after the money, even while Mary side is giving, and following Jesus.

What can I do? As always, the answer is reading the bible and praying.
