A bottle of Perfume

What do you like to smell? Lilac or roses, chocolate cake or spices, cheese or bread?

Alabaster amphora A woman once brought a posh jar of perfume to Jesus when he was visiting a friend.

Instead of giving it to him, she opened the jar and poured the expensive perfume over his head and feet. The scent filled the room.

The disciples thought this was a waste. But Jesus told them that the woman had done something really beautiful for him.

She showed how special she thought Jesus was.

What would you do to show Jesus is special to you?
