Zechariah 11:12 “Then I addressed them: “Pay me what you think I’m worth.” They paid me an insulting sum, counting out thirty silver coins.”
Zechariah 11:13 “…This stingy wage was all they thought of me and my work!…” (MSG)
This woman that poured the oil entered into God’s record book for doing something seemingly insignificant. She poured an expensive oil on Jesus’ feet even though people and some of his disciples saw no sense in what she did.
But this woman demonstrated her value for Christ by this singular act. Jesus responded to the critics by telling them how valuable this woman’s act was. His response:
Luke 7:44 “And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head.”
Jesus valued what she did so much, because at her own hour of need he showed up. Her brother Lazarus died and was buried, but Jesus would not allow him stay in the grave! He showed up and Lazarus came back to life.
When you value people, you don’t go helpless. God will always come through for you!
Beloved, who or what do you need to pour oil on? Is it your boss, your work, colleagues, followers, friends, family members etc?
Locate them and start doing it, how, you may ask?
By being loyal, dedicated and committed to your work, giving a helping hand, satisfying your customers, speaking words of encouragement to others and celebrating them! You know what to do, so get to work and do it, the Lord will grant you understanding.
Start pouring the oil and do it before it is too late! When you do it is as important as doing it!
Talking about “before it is too late”, that is timely valuation. Hear this:
Luke 24:1 “Now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning…”
To be continued…
