The Acceptable Gift
Rest in My Love. Abide in Me.
Leave all to follow Me — your pride, your self-sufficiency, your fears of what others may think — All.
Have no fear. Go forth into the unknown with Me, fearful of nothing with so sure a convoy.
Just as a flower, given as an offering to a loved one, so is your tribute of love to Me.
As Mary gave her Love-offering, spikenard very precious, so give to Me your love and understanding.
