The challenges of life is making it difficult for humans to care, spend time, give, or love those who actually need it. But is that what expect from us? Definitely not!
One day, a costly fragrance was spent on Jesus Christ and a disciple lamented why it was not sold to care for the poor.
"The Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.
But one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, who would betray Him, said, " why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?" (John 12:3-5)
The irony is that, that same costly fragrance will be used to prepare Jesus' body if he dies.
Brethren, the beauty of human life is being live. If a fragrance will be used on Jesus Christ when he is dead, then, why not use it on Him when he is alive too?
Don't allow the fear of future and fear of poverty limit you. If you have money, time, love, or material things share with those alive. Don't wait for tomorrow, because tomorrow is not guaranteed.
