I love the examples of faith in this chapter, especially the Roman officer. I like the fact that the Jews around him vouched for him as a friend of the Jews. I don't think I had noticed that before. I had noticed about how the Roman officer understood the power of authority.
The unnamed woman who washed Jesus' feet with her tears. Could you image that strong of emotion that you could cry enough tears to wash someone's feet? And then drying those feet with your hair. I can image doing that, but who knows when I see Jesus for the first time I just might, actually I probably would. This past week my church and denomination lost a dear friend, mentor, and teacher. So thinking about how the woman responded to Jesus and thinking of my friend being in the presence of his Lord. This song came to mind.
