"She hath done what she could."
- Mark 14:8
 
Mary had done what she could for Jesus, so Jesus testified, when she poured the precious ointment on His head and feet. The LORD highly commended her for it, saying: "Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her."
 
Have we done what we could for Jesus?  Are we confessing Him before men, or do we . . .

"She hath done what she could."
- Mark 14:8
 
Mary had done what she could for Jesus, so Jesus testified, when she poured the precious ointment on His head and feet. The LORD highly commended her for it, saying: "Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her."
 
Have we done what we could for Jesus?  Are we confessing Him before men, or do we take the easy way out and say nothing?  Are we willing to take up the cross and follow Him, or do we try to avoid it?  Do we give as much as we can for the support of His Church, or are our contributions as little as possible?  Do we place our personal talents at His disposal, or do we let others do the work?  Surely, if we love Jesus, we must feel an impelling power within us to do the very best we can for Him.
 
Christian friends, What we are expected to do for Jesus is measured by the ability of the individual. Others might have done more or less according to their circumstances, but Mary did what she could. Whether we have many or few talents, we must always do our best for Jesus. That is what counts.
 
      Somebody gave the Gospel true
      To a soul borne down with despair;
      The message gripped, the Spirit worked,
      The Word had power--and we beheld
      A life released from Satan's snare.
      WAS THAT SOMEBODY YOU?
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Our lives are God's gift to us; what we do with them is our gift to God.
