“But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, ‘Why was this fragrant oil wasted?” Mark 14:4
When you start doing big things for God, there are people who will think you’re crazy and stupid. People of the world cannot understand the things that we do; they can never understand our love for Jesus, don’t bother explaining.
Even carnal Christians wouldn’t always comprehend. Some people will think that you’re trying to show off: don’t mind them!
Some of you reading this have never done anything significant for the Lord, so you don’t understand what I’m saying. I challenge you to do something you’ve never done before. It was a woman’s giving that made people mad! And they couldn’t hide their annoyance. She may have even emptied her account for Jesus! She was a radical giver, the kind of givers they had in the Early Church; men and women who sold their lands and houses and gave the monies to the Lord. Wow!
Nothing you give to Jesus is wasted. He will reward you for everything you do for Him. You’re blessed. Amen.
