  1. Scolded For Love

    Scolded for Love

    Mark 14:4-5​

    4.....Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, "Why this waste of perfume?
    5......It could have been sold for more than a year's wages[a] and the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly.

    1. Mark 14:5 Greek than three hundred denarii

    Isn't it sadly strange that people so often criticize the gifts others
    make? I'm not sure if it is jealousy, greed, or pure pettiness that
    makes humans so quick to be critical of other's generosity. However,
    God loves a cheerful and generous giver. Part of the reason is that we
    are most like God when we give generously and joyously. If only we were
    as generous with our giving as we are with our criticism

  2. Sibling rivalry.
  3. And pride :D
