Love: Today we find ourselves at a dinner with Jesus, his disciples and Mary and Martha of Bethany. After dinner Mary shows her love for Jesus by anointing his feet with almost half a kilogram of perfume. The fragrance must have been utterly overwhelming in the house. Despite this being an act of sheer love, Judas carps about the cost.
Pray that we might show our love for Jesus every day, no matter the cost, no matter who carps on the sidelines.
Give thanks for Nungalinya College in Darwin, remembering especially the students who will begin their studies at the college in 2019.
