Sunday Message: The Best Choice

This is the time of year when we evaluate our lives in light of decisions we’ve made. And in this Sunday morning episode, Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us that each and every day we confront one all-important choice. Get perspective on your priorities as we glean from one woman’s extravagant gift to Jesus in a message titled, “The Best Choice.”

It’s the latest message inThe Gospel for Busy People from Mark 14.


Wherever Jesus went, people would throng him.

The same people that made Jesus popular soon turned on Him.

Every time we read of Mary, she is at the feet of Jesus.

Mary chose what was better—and we all have that choice each and every day.

When you choose what is better, you make the best choice.

Mary understood that Jesus had come to die on the cross.

Read: Mark 14:1–9

Mary breaks open this box of very expensive perfume.

This was an act of complete devotion and abandon!

What is the most valuable physical possession you own? Would you be willing to give it to Jesus?

This was never about stuff; it was about his heart.

Can people tell you have been with Jesus?

What was it that brought this love and sacrifice from Mary? It was Jesus Himself!

Mary had a perception no one else seemed to have.

Not everyone appreciated Mary’s generosity and sacrifice.

“Not that he cared for the poor—he was a thief.” —John 12:6

The ones who often complain the most are the ones who do the least.

Judas Iscariot did not care for the poor; all he cared about was himself.

Jesus commends Mary as an example to us.

Mary did what she could because she understood that Jesus would do what He did.

Mary did what she could . . . we must do what we can.

You can’t do everything, but you can do something.

One day, it will be our last day.

“The meaning of life is a life with meaning . . . in Christ.” —Jim
