For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you can do good for them. But you will not always have me. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial. And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.” (Mark 14:7-9 ESV)

Ибо нищих всегда имеете с собою и, когда захотите, можете им благотворить; а Меня не всегда имеете. Она сделала, что могла: предварила помазать тело Мое к погребению. Истинно говорю вам: где ни будет проповедано Евангелие сие в целом мире, сказано будет, в память ее, и о том, что она сделала. (От Марка 14:7-9 Russian)

O LORD God, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you for the amazing gift of life that we see not only in ourselves, but all over the earth you created. Give us wisdom and a caring heart like the woman who broke the alabaster box of the most expensive perfume to honor our blessed Savior. Help us not to begrudge those who lavish expensive gifts on the poor. Bless Christians everywhere who are being generous toward the poor and not simply criticizing those who do good. In the name of our precious Jesus, Amen.
