A woman to be remembered

I've really enjoyed reading through Dick France's daily commentary on the gospel of Mark. For chapter 14.1-9 and the extravagantly 'wasteful' breaking of a very expensive jar of perfume poured over Jesus by Mary (named in John's gospel), France comments,
There is room in the kingdom of God both for the careful stewardship of resources for the sake of those in need, and, on occasion, for spontaneous and uncalculating devotion. True discipleship embraces not only scrupulous accountancy but also reckless exuberance. There is, 'a time to gather....and a time to throw away' (Ecceciates 3.3-6)

A message from the other side
