Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-Five
Read: Matthew 26:6-13
Think: Do you think that the woman in this story knew that Jesus was going to die—hence Him referencing His burial? Why do you think the woman “wasted” something so precious and expensive to honor Jesus? How have you honored God with your possessions, talents, time, and money?
Pray: God, I want to “waste” it all on you! I want to show you honor with the way I do my work honestly and diligently. I want to honor you in the tone I use with my family. I want to spend my money on things that will glorify you. Help me to be like the woman in this story.
Apply: Pick one area from these four things: money, talents, a possession, or time. Which one are you most selfish with? Take one step toward giving total control over this area to God. How can you use it to honor and anoint Jesus, the way this woman did with her perfume?
