Jesus delights in our gifts, just as he did in Mary’s, in Mark 14:6. When Mary anointed his head with oil, he said, “She has done a beautiful thing for me.” It came from a heart of love, as she was anointing him for burial. Whatever is given from a heart of love is beautiful to him. Jesus desires us to have a healthy heart that beats with love!
