Matthew 26:11

11 You will always have poor people with you. But you will not always have me.

Matthew 26:11 In-Context

9 "The perfume could have been sold at a high price. The money could have been given to poor people."
10 Jesus was aware of this. So he said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me.
11 You will always have poor people with you. But you will not always have me.
12 She poured the perfume on my body to prepare me to be buried.
13 What I'm about to tell you is true. What she has done will be told anywhere this good news is preached all over the world. It will be told in memory of her."
