What do you make of my statement that the poor will be with you always? Do you see this as an excuse to ignore their plight, since the problem will endure despite your efforts to resolve it? If you recall the original story, my statement was in response to a disingenuous objection to love lavished on me. Caring for the poor has been a strong theme supported in the Bible and Christian practice since the beginning, so my statement above should not be considered an excuse for not doing so. You could instead view this in a positive light, that you will never lack opportunities to minister in this way.
