    Verse 7: Jesus was simply acknowledging that poverty would be a part of life as long as this corrupt system of things continues. He was not condoning poverty.

    Thank you Jesus for bearing these insults and beatings for my sake and for sinners like me in the world. We pray for grace for His salvation from our lives of sin so His precious Blood is not shed in vain.

    "She hath done what she could" She anointed Jesus for burial preparation, and they were fussing because the oil could have been sold and the $$ given to the poor- these were the Scribes and Pharisees- hypocrites, they thought it was a waste for her to do such an act. I would like to be remembered by my grandchildren, Maw Maw loved God, she did all she could do. Be an example.

    The verse 9 caught my attention so much that I can't stop meditating.As Christians what good would be remembered of us by our fellow Christians and heaven as well. Does our good work please God? That is the question we should ask ourselves.
