Why did Jesus consider it a “beautiful thing?”
Why did Judas pretend to care about the poor? What would he have done with the sale of the perfume?

Gather perfumed lotions from the corners of the house. Every family member gets a luxurious foot rub. What is special about receiving a foot rub? What is awkward about giving one, especially to someone you don’t know very well?

Thank God for every blessing you can think of. (Enter His gate with thanksgiving!)
Thank God for WHO He is (Savior, Redeemer, Provider, Everlasting Father)
