She did what she could. She anointed my body beforehand for burial. — Mark 14:8 NET
A child offered her teacher a handful of weeds and grass, wilted and soiled, and said, “Here is a bouquet for you!” The teacher saw the love in the child’s eyes, and accepted the gift with sincere gratitude. Just so, Christ accepts our smallest gifts or services–if He sees love in our heart.
This is the spirit with which Christ receives the gifts and services of those who love him. The gifts may be worthless, and the services may avail nothing–but for the love that prompts them, he accepts them with real gladness, and richly rewards them.
