O her spikenard is very costly; and since the time I came in, she hath not ceased to kiss my feet!
Suppose the King tonight came into your home and sat down at your table? O You've been healed of the venomous plague; you've been clothed in raiment of needlework; you've been removed out of your own blood; and, he has said unto your dying soul, LIVE!
Now would you be ready to offer an oblation appropriate for such a King of heaven as this? Are you so sick of love that you could give Him a little kiss, a little tear, and an alabaster box of ointment to anoint his head to the burying? Suppose he came in with his face set like a flint to go to Jerusalem to die --for you!
O thou wretched man, would not 300 pence worth of spikenard be a very small thing in comparison of this? Must He protest against you at the judgment seat saying, "thou gavest me no kiss, thou gavest me no water, thou gavest me no oil?"
Alas, give him whatsoever oblation is proportionate to your soul's precious bounty. Yea, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God!
