Extravagant giving

Sometimes we see someone's generosity and we think, "That's too much!" That was the reaction of Judas, when he saw Mary pouring out perfume on the feet of Jesus. But when we fully understand how much Jesus has done for us, we understand why people are so thankful, generous and loving in response.

God, help us to fully grasp your love for us. Thank you for your generosity to us. We praise you. Amen.

See John 12:1-8 for more background.
