Alabaster is to me a symbol of being broken and spilled out. One sees this in the woman who broke an alabaster vile full of pure nard (costly fragrance) and used it to anoint the feet of Jesus at one time (Luke 7:37) and the head of Jesus at another (Matthew 26:7 and Mark 14:3). It could have been two separate women or perhaps the same one, who knows. Some even say it was Mary Magdalene.
Symbolically my life has been broken and spilled out as well; and I have chosen to be poured out at Jesus’ feet. A symbol of lavish love and passion for my Savior. As for the “sky” part, that just comes out of poetic license. I have a box made of alabaster. It reminds me of God’s majesty in this universe and in the skies above.
All of us experience brokenness at one time or another. Our attitude towards it and what we choose to do with what spills out is up to us. Make it count.
However you may know Him, I pray you are blessed by the reading.
