In our passage from John’s gospel this Sunday, Jesus says “you will always have the poor with you.” Some have assumed that this passage lets us all off the hook. It sounds as though Jesus is condoning the permanence of poverty. There is nothing we can do to end it. It is beyond our control.
In fact, Jesus is saying the exact opposite. Ending poverty is everyone’s responsibility! Come explore this passage on Sunday!
Based on John 12:1-8 and Deuteronomy 15:7-11.
