Her extravagance was not because she wanted to find salvation, but because salvation had found her.
The word "extravagant" comes from the Latin, "extravagari" meaning to "wander outside or beyond". It describes working outside the typical confined lines, even recklessly so.
The woman in this passage was a great example of going "outside the lines" in her passion to demonstrate her love for Jesus!
Here's a challenging word from Jesus after this woman was ridiculed for expressing her love in an extravagant way, found in verse 47b..."but whoever has been forgiven little loves little."
I don't know about you, but I have been forgiven BIGLEY! (I know it's not a word but it's my definition of A LOT!!!) My passion and goal is to love and honor Him in the manner that He has forgiven me!
In what way will you express your extravagant love to Him?
