Numbers 8:1-26; Proverbs 5:1-6:19; Mark 15:24-47

She hath wrought a good work upon me. Matthew 26:10

Just before His death, a woman came to Jesus carrying a box of “very precious ointment” (Matt. 26:7), and poured it on His head. Two reproaches were offered by His disciples. They criticized her for doing it, calling it a waste and the Lord for allowing it, inferring that the poor were a more worthy recipient. Is He worthy of our acts of devotion? Do our hearts offer Him our gratitude, praise and worship? Our blessed Saviour alone is worthy! Is He not the author of our eternal salvation? He alone is worthy of receiving universal recognition and honour. Have you thanked and blessed Him today? —Vernon Markle

All praise to Him who reigns above in majesty supreme,
Who gave His Son for man to die, that He might man redeem. —William H. Clark
