Where to begin…the anointing of Jesus’ feet has always been interesting to me. The disciples up in arms about the waste, and Jesus’ comment about the poor always being with us. I have heard some people use this as rational for not helping those in need. After all Jesus said they will always be around. I don’t think that is what he meant. My guess is he was talking in terms of priority. With his imminent death approaching, I think he wanted them to focus on that and its meaning for them and the world. Another interesting fact about this event is that it seems it was the event that pushed Judas over the edge to make the decision to betray Christ.
