She Has Done What She Could
Mark 14:3-9tells of Jesus being anointed by a woman in Bethany. She broke an alabaster flask of costly oil and poured it on His head. Others criticized the woman's action as being wasteful, saying the oil might have been sold and the money given to the poor. However,Jesus rebuked them and said she was doing a good deed for Him. "She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial."
He went on to say that everywhere the gospel was preached, what the woman did was to be told as a memorial to her. What an honor! However, notice that her deed was memorialized by the Lord, not because she did something great, but because she simply did what she could. Could the same thing be said of us?
We want to see the gospel spread, the lost saved, and the church grow. Instead of lamenting the things we don't think we can do, or waiting around for something great to do, what would happen if we all just did the things that we can do?
