"God isn't just all-knowing, He sees our hearts and knows our reasons. We read in John 12 that it was Mary, the sister of Lazarus and Martha, who anointed Jesus with expensive oil and wiped His feet with her hair. Deeply touched by Jesus, Mary wanted to honour Him by giving Him something of deep significance. This seemingly spontaneous event occured six days
before the Passover. Jesus had arrived in Bethany where He had been welcomed into Lazarus, Martha, and Mary’s home. Jesus understood the deep significance of Mary’s offering, but not everyone appreciated it. John tells us that Judas Iscariot took offense to her gift, arguing that the oil could have been sold and the money given to the poor. John made sure to reveal a more sinister intention: Judas apparently stole money from the offerings given to Jesus. God knows all our hearts, even if people do not. In this reading, we see two individuals on opposite sides of the fence: Mary who gave much, and Judas who only pretended to give much.
