jesus christ (pbuh) though spiritually rich in wisdom, light and truth; philosophised light-heartedly about the beggars of the world, when he said:

there came unto him (jesus) a woman having an albaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head...

but when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, to what purpose is this waste?

for this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

... he (jesus) said unto them ... for ye have the poor always with you, but (poor) me ye have not always.

(holy bible) matthew 26: 7-11

but when destitution stared him in the face. when poverty, penury and need touched his own dear self; he cried pathetically:

and jesus saith unto him, the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the son of man (referring to himself) hath not where to lay his head.

(holy bible) matthew 8: 20 also repeated in luke 9: 58

and yet god chose him (jesus pbuh): unique and inscrutable are thy ways o lord!
