A beautiful thing

RE Verse reading–Mark 14:1-9 (day six)
“She has done a beautiful thing to me.”  (vs 6)  It is a beautiful day in San Antonio.  Friday as I write this blog.  Clear skies, sunny, just a hint of cool in the air.  The work of God.  Are we made to do something similar?  Maybe not on the same scale, but yes!  Our lives and choices are intended by God to be morally and intellectually splendid, reflecting the Creator and His goodness.  In Mark 14, Jesus commends Mary because she has done something beautiful.  The greek word is kalos, “good because it is beautiful rather than good because it is practical”.  What will you do today that reflects the beauty of God’s love for others?  What will you do today that will reflect the beauty of God’s generosity?  “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good (kalos, “beautiful”) works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”  (Ephesians 2:11)
