She Hath Wrought a Good Work

What could she possibly do to serve Him?

.

Jesus had raised her brother from the dead.

She had sat at his feet receiving the gospel.

Jesus loved Mary and her family

.

What meaningful gift could she possibly offer the Savior?

.

Perhaps Mary, as many women, was more attuned the Savior’s feelings.

… His impending suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane.

… His death on the cross.

… His burial in the garden tomb.

… Perhaps she knew … perhaps she understood.

.

What meaningful gift could she possibly offer the Savior?

… Anointing His head with oil.

… Washing His feet with her tears.

… Mourning with Him.

… An expression of heartfelt gratitude for all He had done and would do for her.

.

And he gratefully accepted it.

.

.

Christ has done so much for us

.

What meaningful gift can we possibly offer Him?

.

We can’t anoint His head with oil

… or bathe his feet with our tears of gratitude.

.

But we can remember Him – Luke 22:19

… we can keep His commandments – John 14:15

… we can love and serve each other – John 13:34-35

… we can make covenants – Mosiah 18:10

… we can repent of our sins. 3 Nephi 9:22

.

Our gifts may not seem like much …

… but like Mary’s humble offering

… the Savior loves … and accepts … and is grateful for whatever we can offer.

.

What gift will can you offer to the Savior today?
