March 10, 2013 – Mark 14 – In Excessive Love

Today’s passage: Mark 14:1-9

“Show me the love.” In our lives, we can be and should be searching for excellence. One of these aspects of excellence is extravagant love. As God loves us extravagantly, so we naturally respond by loving those around us and especially back to God. Here, we find Jesus walking around Jerusalem speaking the truth in love when he encounters a woman with the jar of pure nard and her extravagant love for her Lord and Savior. How does her example of extravagant love apply to our modern lives? In a similar situation, what will we do when have such excess as she had of her precious perfume?
