How deep the Father's love...



Today  I was reading  a devotion in the morning  from the gospels about the woman with the alabaster

jar  who demonstrated her devotion to  Christ during the dinner  Simon ,the Pharisee ,hosts for

Jesus. Whenever I have read or heard  a sermon on it the stress has been always on what the woman

did.Nowadays,the Lord has been showing me the other side of it which is very evident but we often skip

through.The part where Simon does not do ……

The event reads-‘ Then He turned toward the woman and said to Simon ,’Do you not see this woman?I

came into your house .You did not give me any water for my feet,but she wet my feet with her tears and

wiped them with her hair.You did not give me a kiss,but this woman ,from the time I have entered ,has

not stopped kissing my feet.You did not put oil on my head,but she has poured perfume on my feet….’

Is the Lord asking me this question today?

It poignantly touched my heart because I  have invited Christ into my  heart but how often do I

acknowledge His presence by  washing His feet, greet Him with a kiss ,or anoint His head with oil….in

other words how often do I express  my devotion to Him?
