Appropriately extravagant

They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Matt 2:11

I received an extravagant gift with the price tag still on it and was appalled that someone would spend so much on that item. Then I realized I was reacting like Judas reacted to the extravagant woman who anointed Jesus with expensive perfume. The gifts of the magi were also extravagant gifts to Christ. The cross and the manger and grace are God’s extravagant gifts to us. 

Lord, help me to reflect Your extravagant love.
