6 When Jesus was at Bethany visiting the house of Simon, who had a skin disease, 7 a woman came to him with a vase made of alabaster containing very expensive perfume. She poured it on Jesus’ head while he was sitting at dinner. 8 Now when the disciples saw it they were angry and said, “Why this waste? 9 This perfume could have been sold for a lot of money and given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus knew what they were thinking. He said, “Why do you make trouble for the woman? She’s done a good thing for me. 11 You always have the poor with you, but you won’t always have me. 12 By pouring this perfume over my body she’s prepared me to be buried. 13 I tell you the truth that wherever in the whole world this good news is announced, what she’s done will also be told in memory of her.” (Matthew 26:-13, CEB)
So wherever in the world this good news is told, what she has done will also be told. But what is her name?
She did a good thing for Jesus by preparing Him to be buried, but we don’t even get to know her name. And in the Gospel of John it says that Judas was upset about this because it was Nard and expensive. So they could have gotten a lot of money for it.
But she did a good thing for Jesus.
Who does good things for you?
Do you know their names?
