Stories We're Following: From Canadian Mennonite
"Yes, the poor will always be with us. Jesus said it himself. But isn’t it strange that we have historically read that passage found in both Matthew 26:11 and Mark 14: 7 from the lens of prophecy? What if we read this passage as Jesus’ indictment—as a call to right wrongs, free captives from societal prisons and create a world of justice? Would our behaviour and mindset change if Jesus had said, “The poor will always be with you, so what are you going to do about it?”"
