Mary was at it again.
Following Jesus where she didn’t belong.
Once, she had even left her sister to do everything while she simply sat at the feet of Jesus.
Now, here she was–again–at the feet of Jesus while Martha served. But this time she wasn’t content to just sit. She was pouring out her heart through tears, using them, her hair, and some of the special oil she had been saving, to wash our Master’s feet.
But it wasn’t her place.
The costly oil surely had a better purpose.
And what about Martha?
I’m sure all these thoughts and more circled around the table above her sobs. But Jesus? He told everyone there to leave her alone.
Mary was always welcome at the feet of Jesus.
And so are we.
Because the feet of Jesus is never the wrong place to be.At the feet of Jesus is never the wrong place to be… Click To Tweet
This is an edited excerpt of a devotion I’ll be sharing next Wednesday on Facebook. I’m part of a writers’ club that will be hosting a Passion Week Celebration. So when I stumbled upon Deborah’s post about Mary worshipping at the feet of Jesus, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to share it with you as well.
Deborah’s post is a short, must-read, by the way. I mean, we can never spend too much time at the feet of Jesus.
