flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head
as He sat at the table. But when His disciples saw it, they were
indignant, saying, ‘Why this waste? For this fragrant oil might
have been sold for much and given to the poor.’”
We want to appear to be busy doing for God, busy at our “ministry.” But there is a place where we simply “waste” ourselves on Him, and outwardly we appear to be doing nothing.
Would that more believers would “waste” themselves more often, ministering to the Lord, sitting at His feet, hearing His word, ministering to Him in secret prayer and fasting! Then when they do rise up to work, how much more fruitful they will be!
