Lord, help me to give and to receive

Is. 42:1-7; Ps. 27(26):1,2,3,13-14;
Jn. 12:1-11 (Ps Wk II)

God promised great things to the people of Israel who were in exile. His servant would establish justice, as well as a covenant with the people. They were to become the light to the nations. Many centuries later, the early Christians would use these verses to describe Jesus. God is always working for us and always desires our well-being, happiness, and spiritual growth. Whether it's in the time of Isaiah, the time of Jesus, or our own time, God is always there — knowing and believing that is what faith is all about.

As an expression of great love and respect, Mary the sister of Lazarus anointed the feet of Jesus with costly ointment and wiped them with her hair. Judas protested that it was a waste — the money should have been given to the poor. Jesus recognized it for what it was: an act of loving kindness and an anointing for his burial, which was approaching rapidly. Jesus was always kind and compassionate to others, but he also knew how to receive kindness. Often that is difficult for people — some are great at giving but cannot stand to receive. Giving and receiving are both expressions of love.

Lord, help me to give and to receive.
