In homeschool this week we've been studying the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection. Yesterday Ben and I read the story of Mary anointing Jesus with expensive perfume. I asked Ben "what can we learn from this story?" His answer was "That Jesus always keeps his promises!" Huh? That's a great truth but where is that in this story? "Well:, he said, "Jesus promised Mary that whenever the story is told, what she has done will be told too, and we're talking about her today"! (Mark 11:9) Good lesson! With that we ended the Bible study - I figured what he learned was as good as what I'd planned on teaching!
