The alabaster jar – perfume worth a year’s wage. To a thief, unnecessary expense. To a donor, better off given to the poor. To an extravagant worshipper, insufficient to express love.
The alabaster jar – symbol of everything precious you have that is worth nothing if not used to express love for Jesus.
What is precious to you? What is in your hand that you cannot share with Him? What are you willing to surrender to express love for Him?
