The Prosperity Roadblock

 

LENT – A SEASON OF SEEKING

The Prosperity Roadblock

Miraculously, Lazarus is now fully alive and well, and reclining at the dinner table.  And Mary, overcome with gratefulness, takes a pint of pure nard and pours it on Jesus’ feet, wiping his feet with her hair.  Mary’s action was an act of love, a gift.  But not just any gift, rather a lavish gift given freely and without reservation.  Mary demonstrated her love by freely giving of her  financial resources without carying about her reputation or the criticism she would receive from such a gift.  But how does stewardship merge with wisdom when we reflect on both Mary’s actions and the boisterous Palm Sunday crowds?

John 12:1-19
