I thought perhaps since it is close to Easter, it might be good to encourage all of you with a different slant to part of the Easter story.
At my church a few years ago the minister, Dr. Brad Reynolds, was preaching on Mark 14. I had heard this chapter preached on many times before. You probably remember it also.
While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head. Mary 14:3 (NIV)
It was right before Easter and I was taking notes and listening when my eyes jumped ahead and fell on one particular verse. The words seemed to jump out at me. In verse eight it says,
She did what she could.
