Jesus Christ came preaching to the region of
Once Jesus was invited by a Pharisee to eat with him. A woman, who was a sinner, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, wept, washed his feet, wiped them, kissed them and anointed them with oil. The Pharisee spoke to himself, if this man (Jesus) is a real prophet he would have known who is touching him. Jesus said that her sins which are many are forgiven. So she loved him much.

God will reward everybody according to our works.
