Well, here we are at the end of this series. Thank you if you’ve stuck with me throughout. I hope you’ve enjoyed it and the length of the posts has been about right, but if you’ve got any ideas on how I could do another 31 Days series differently, please comment.
Proverbs 31:30 says: “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised”, and in her latest devotional, Gwen Smith hits the spot when she says: “True beauty begins when we hold tightly to the truth of God and allow the truth of God to hold tightly to us.” When a woman pours very expensive perfume on Jesus, one translation words His response this way: “She has done a beautiful thing to Me. … Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her” (Matthew 26:10, 13).
You will have gathered by now that I like story-songs, and this tells the story of the woman with the perfume. Gwen has written quite a few songs, but this was the one that impressed me from the first time I heard it, and I thought it would be a nice end to the series. Let’s go into November, and the rest of our lives, looking for opportunities to do something meaningful for Jesus.
