Sometimes I spend too much time thinking about serving God and others. I get an inkling, then analyze it, and wonder what others will think about it and how it will be received. Honestly, praying about it is often the last thing I do. Not so with the woman with the alabaster jar of costly ointment! She acted out of a humble heart and a love so pure she did not care what others thought. The only opinion that mattered to her was that of Jesus. I want to be more like this woman—humbly serving God and doing acts that show my love for Him, not for the attention of others. How about you?'
