When a sinful woman in that town found out that Jesus was there, she bought an expensive bottle of perfume. She came into the home and approached Jesus from behind. As she did, she began weeping. Next, she knelt down, wetting his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the perfume. The Pharisee who had invited Jesus saw this and said to himself, "If this man really were a prophet, he would know what kind of woman is touching him! He would know that she is a sinner."

-Luke 7:37-39

Then he turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn’t offer me water to wash the dust from my feet, but she has washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You didn’t greet me with a kiss, but from the time I first came in, she has not stopped kissing my feet. You neglected the courtesy of olive oil to anoint my head, but she has anointed my feet with rare perfume. “I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” Then Jesus said to the woman, "Your sins are forgiven."

-Luke 7:44-48

I guarantee you this: wherever the Gospel is preached in the world, what she has done will be told in memory of her.

-Mark 14:9

Instead of seeing people as a , I must instead see them as an opportunity to demonstrate extravagant .
