John 12: 7-8 ” ‘Leave her alone,’ Jesus replied. ‘It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of My burial. You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have Me.’ “

Here Jesus was addressing Judas Iscariot after Judas had made a heartless & inconsiderate remark about Mary pouring an extravagant amount of Nard on the feet of Jesus & wiping them with her hair. Judas only saw the beautiful expression of love & devotion as a terrible waste – thus belittling the gift, the giver, & the recipient. Jesus was quick to come to Mary’s defense knowing that His time was near, and the opportunities to be in His presence & serve Him here on earth would never come again.
