Friday, March 15. Imagine you are Mary in John 12:1-8. Why did you want to anoint Jesus? Write a journal entry from Mary’s perspective.
Words from The Word: The LORD says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—-you can see it now!”
-Isaiah 43:18-19, GNT
