NOVEMBER 16

 

 She hath done what she could—Mark 14:8

 

 It is not our privilege to come into personal contact with our dear Redeemer, but it is our privilege to anoint the Lord’s “brethren” with the sweet perfume of love, sympathy, joy and peace, and the more costly this may be as respects our self-denials, the more precious it will be in the estimation of our Elder Brother, who declared that in proportion as we do or do not unto His brethren, we do or do not unto Him.... Our alabaster boxes are our hearts, which should be full of the richest and sweetest perfumes of good wishes, kindness and love toward all, but especially toward.., our Lord Jesus, and toward all His disciples... on whom we now have the privilege of pouring out the sweet odors of love and devotion in the name of the Lord, because we are His.
