John 12 NASB
Mary Anoints Jesus

1 (A)Jesus, therefore, six days before (B)the Passover, came to (C)Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.

2 So they made Him a supper there, and (D)Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.

3 (E)Mary then took a pound of very costly (F)perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4 But (G)Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, said,

5 "Why was this perfume not sold for [a]three hundred denarii and given to poor people?"

6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he (H)had the money box, he used to pilfer (I)what was put into it.

Mark 14 ESV
Jesus Anointed at Bethany

6But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.
7For(I) you always have the poor with you, and whenever(J) you want, you can do good for them. But(K) you will not always have me.
8(L) She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand(M) for burial. 9And truly, I say to you, wherever(N) the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told(O) in memory of her."

When you love someone totally, you'll give all you have to prove that love. In John chapter 12, Mary of Bethany anointed the feet of Jesus with costly oil and then wiped His feet with her hair. Her pure love for the Savior is an example of the kind of devotion we all should have to the Christ who redeemed us.
