Matthew 26:10-11

Posted by joncooper

Matthew 26:10: “When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.”

Notice how Jesus put Himself above the poor! If He was just a mere man – a teacher or a prophet or some guy with good ideas – then this was a terrible, selfish thing to say. But if He really was God (which is what Jesus always claimed to be!) then this makes a great deal of sense. God should always be honored above everything else, including the poor.
