What Will I Be Remembered For?

Wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.Matthew 26:13

In just a few short hours Jesus will agonize in the Garden and go to the Cross. But for now He is in Bethany with His friends where at dinner a woman approaches with an extravagantly expensive gift of perfume which she pours on His feet. The disciples are displeased at this seeming waste of money but Jesus quietly dismisses their reaction, graciously accepting her humble, sacrificial act as evidence of deep faith and love.

We immediately read that Judas’ “as keeper of the common purse” has had enough of Jesus’ apparent disregard for what Judas perceives to be the real needs of the people. He goes to the chief priests, offering to betray the Savior for thirty silver coins.

Two people – Both remembered. One, for faith without seeing, the other for seeing without faith. What will I be remembered for?

Thank you, Father, for loving me and for Your grace which  accepts my too-small sacrifices,  transforming them into offerings which glorify You. May I each day humbly offer myself to You so that the world will see Christ in me and long to know Him.
