Earlier this week, I published a post about the woman who extravagantly worships Jesus by breaking a jar of expensive perfume and wiping His feet with her hair (her glory!). We examined the reactions of those observing the scene and drew out challenges for ourselves.
In this post I want to share some of my notes from a sermon John Piper preached on a similar story in the gospel of John 12. This is the first time sharing my sermon notes as they were taken rather than presented in blog format. Enjoy! (…and excuse the mess)!
That quote from 1 Timothy 6:6-10 highlights the dangers that come with even wanting to be rich. This isn’t just about the love of money, (v10), the line is drawn even closer to home (v9). How this isn’t talked about! I think we tolerate this ‘desire to be rich’, in our own lives and the lives of our fellow Christians. I certainly do.
