The generosity of Mary is clear when she uses an expensive gift of perfume to anoint Jesus in response to the raising of her brother Lazarus. In hindsight, we can also see that this anointing is appropriate as the King of kings gives his life as a ransom for all people. However, Judas is jealous of the gift. It is not so much that he wants the perfume poured upon himself. It is either that he wants the money or maybe that he just wants control of the money which is just as good. Today we will look at what it meant to be generous with God rather than jealous of God’s gifts.
