Prelude to the Passover

Is there a limit to what we are willing to give to Jesus? Mary’s costly gift of love is contrasted with Judas’ betrayal. Mary trades social and economic status for the love and surety found in Jesus Christ. She follows Jesus, not for what she can get, but for who He is and what he has done for her. Are we willing to give costly or are we hedging our bets?
