John 19:38-39New International Version (NIV)
The Burial of Jesus

Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.
Dear Father, You care. You have followers who care. It is sometimes difficult to do what is right, and it can be scary. Caring and doing what is right is good in your sight, Lord. Praise God. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
