A MATTER OF EXPENSE

“A woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard”.

Mk 14:3 NIV

We can’t live without money. It is as essential as air, food and water. We need it for everything – food, clothing, shelter, transport, taxes and entertainment. And we often make an assessment of other people based on what we perceive is the amount of money they have. We tend to admire those who have plenty. And we wonder why those who haven’t got plenty, haven’t. Then when we find somebody who is obviously poor but who does something very generous, we acknowledge that there is something very beautiful there. We may even say, “She struggles, but she has a heart of gold”. That description changes everything. It is probably one of the most prized characteristics with which anyone can be credited.

Money can make ogres or angels out of us. It can wrap its tentacles around our hearts and make us selfish, miserly, and greedy. It can make us deeply unhappy if we let it. Some people allow money to become their god. They think about little else. Then some waste what they get. A famous footballer in England who was known to be very highly paid was asked after his retirement what he had done with all the money he had made. He said, “Well. I spent it on cars, and booze and birds (girl-friends). And the rest I suppose I just wasted”.

But some regard it as a gift, an opportunity, a way to do good to others. When we have a heart of love, we can perform wonders, miracles even, because then the price of anything becomes a secondary consideration.

What does money mean to you?
