Doing All You Could Do
By David Shearer
  In Mark chapter fourteen we read of a flask of valuable ointment that was broken and poured over Jesus head. I’m sure we have all read this factual account, but have we always absorbed everything that is happening.

  First, notice how Mark records what happened. “But there were some that had indignation among themselves, saying. To what purpose hath this waste of the ointment been made?” Verse 4.
I thought it interesting that not all has the same way of thinking. “…And they murmured against her.” Verse 5

  Now, I thought to myself this rings so true even today. People are quick to be accusatory of others actions and intentions. When one thinks about it this is revealing of the heart of one making the accusations often times. The assumptions made many times prove wrong.

  Jesus understanding the ins and outs of this situation set the record straight knowing their hearts, said “…Let her alone…” Verse 6. He went on to say in Verse 8,She had done what she could.” To me He is telling us that she gave it her all for His sake.

  There are valuable lessons to be learned from these short verses that could solve a lot of misunderstanding in our lives. Think if everyone did everything they could to right every wrong. Took every opportunity to show more love for one another. Overlooked others misgivings in hopes that others would overlook ours.  

  This woman is remembered wherever the Gospel is preach because “She hath done what she could.” Verses 8, 9.

  How will you be remembered when you’re gone, maybe more importantly how do folks look at you now.
God is Sprit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24).
