“While [Jesus] was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured perfume on his head. Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, “Why this waste of perfume? It could have been sold for more than a year’s wages and the money given to the poor.” And they rebuked her harshly. “Leave her alone,” said Jesus. Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them anytime you want. But you will not always have me. She did what she could…” Mark 14:3-8
Jesus said Mary did a beautiful thing, she did what she could. Mary did one simple action, something she could do immediately with what she had to make a difference.
Sometimes the issue of sex trafficking is overwhelming and it’s hard to know where to begin. We need to strengthen laws, spread awareness, increase shelters, raise funds, train professionals, and the list goes on. But if we each do what we can, together, we’ll make a huge impact.
• Wisdom to know how to become involved in combatting trafficking.
• To be alert and responsive when God shows you how to engage.
