    "She hath done what she could" She anointed Jesus for burial preparation, and they were fussing because the oil could have been sold and the $$ given to the poor- these were the Scribes and Pharisees- hypocrites, they thought it was a waste for her to do such an act. I would like to be remembered by my grandchildren, Maw Maw loved God, she did all she could do. Be an example.

    The verse 9 caught my attention so much that I can't stop meditating.As Christians what good would be remembered of us by our fellow Christians and heaven as well. Does our good work please God? That is the question we should ask ourselves.

    23-25 This cup which we bless, we drink in remembrance of His blood shed for our redemption. At the same time He is vowing the vow of the Nazarite, to refrain from the fruit of the vine until He "drinks it new with us in the kingdom of God." Like when Naomi told her daughter-in-law Ruth to sit still; for Boaz would not rest until he had finished the matter that day:What Jesus began He will finish!
