God’s Approval

RE Verse reading–Mark 14:1-9 (day four)
It was a touching act of kindness…a very costly vial of perfume!  It was not the cost of the gift that was important though, it was the heart motivation behind the act.  This woman wanted to honor the Lord…verse 8 says, “She has done what she could”.  Could it be said of you…”They have done what they could”?  Have you done all you could to bring glory to God?  Integrity is doing right before God.  We don’t have to receive the approval of men for what we do…others may not even understand the motivation behind an act.  God sees the heart…He knows the motivation…He recognizes the righteousness of our actions.  It is His approval we seek, not the approval of man.  When we are righteous before God, He looks with favor upon us.  For this woman, Jesus said, Wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her.”
