Can we waste anything on the Lord?

Matthew told on himself when he showed how he and his fellow-apostles responded to a woman, who had poured an expensive fragrant oil on the head of Jesus,

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” (Matthew 26:8–9).

In their minds, this woman wasted the oil by pouring it on the head of the Creator of heaven and earth!

If they truly knew who sat in that house with them, they would have realized it was not a waste, and that He could easily make more oil, and that He could easily provide the funds for helping the poor.

Let us devote ourselves to honoring the Lord of heaven and earth, and He shall then provide us with what we need to do His will on the earth.
