Fragrance Up to Heaven

“The house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.” John 12:3

Jesus liked visiting his friends, Martha, Mary and Lazarus. He went to see them in Bethany before proceeding to Jerusalem for His Last Supper. Martha served dinner, Lazarus sat at the table with Him, and Mary did something special for Him. She took a 12 ounce jar of expensive perfume made from the essence of nard, and anointed Jesus’ dusty feet. She wiped His feet with her hair, and the whole house was filled with the aroma of this amber-colored essential oil. 

If we would like to do something crazy extravagant for Jesus, what would it be? He said that whatever we do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we do for Him. In the Philippines, we are surrounded by many children in the streets selling sampaguita. Perhaps we can invite them to a nice lunch? They will never be able to repay us. I know a man inflicted with the terrible disease of Arteriovenous Malformation. His blood is flowing in all the wrong places and his face is so malformed, he cannot work. Search “Buddy Cabural” on google if you want to help. Whatever we decide to do for one or two of the least of Jesus’ friends this Holy Week, we can be sure that the fragrance will reach up to heaven.
