  •  Bible verse Jesus comments on the poor (2+ / 0-)

    I believe this is in reference to the response Jesus made to the disciples when a woman came to bathe his feet and rub them with an expensive fragarent ointment, drying them with her hair. To paraphrase the meaning was don't criticize her for an extravagant gesture (tending to his physical needs with a luxury when the money spent for the ointment could have been given to the poor).

    The meaning is so not what conservatives would like to think. The poor are indeed always with us but sometimes a little luxury as a kind gesture is a wonderful thing. The poor are always going to be with us, this gesture doesn't change our work.
