“Mary took…an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair” (John 12:3 NIV).
Marys are gifted with praise. They don’t just sing; they worship. They don’t simply attend church; they go to offer praise. And they don’t talk about Christ; they radiate Christ. Marys seem to have one foot in heaven and the other on a cloud.
Now, sometimes they need to be reminded that there are bills to be paid and classes to be taught. But don’t remind them too harshly. Marys are precious souls with tender hearts. And if they have found a place at the foot of Jesus, don’t ask them to leave. Much better to ask them to pray for you. That’s what I do. When I find a Mary, I’m quick to ask, “How do I get on your prayer list?”
