“Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a noble thing for me.” (Matthew 26:10)
It’s easy to criticize the way other people express their love for Jesus. It’s easy to question the sincerity or propriety or wisdom when they do things differently than we do
But Jesus looks at the heart, and knows who is truly devoted to Him and who is not.
Jesus knew the person most concerned about the money this woman was “wasting” was actually stealing money for himself.
Jesus knows when those who are most critical of other people’s methods of praise are really the most cold-hearted within, and He loves them still.
And Jesus knows you and the state of your heart.
And He loves you still.
