Mary's Devotion to Jesus

In John 12:1-7, at a meal given in Jesus' honor, Mary expressed her devotion to the Lord by breaking open an expensive jar of fragrant oil, anointing Jesus' feet with it, and wiping them with her hair. Some objected, but Jesus commended Mary for her actions. It was a busy week, but Mary felt compelled to honor Jesus and, even in these final days of His life, Jesus welcomed her love and devotion. Mary probably didn't understand all that was happening that week, but she wanted to express her love for Jesus. We may lack understanding as well, but we can show our love for Him just as she did.
