Excerpt from Discourse Preached in the Center Church, in New Haven, August 27, 1828: At the Funeral of Jehudi Ashmun, Esq. Colonial Agent of the American Colony of Liberia

That incident in the life of our Saviour, from the narrative of which these words are taken, affords us a beautiful lesson. As Jesus sat at meat in the house of one of his friends, Mary, the sister of Lazarus, came with an alabaster box of precious ointment, and anointed his feet and wiped them with her hair, and brake the box, and poured the ointment on his head, so that the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. And there were some who had indignation among themselves, and said. To what purpose is this waste; for this ointment might have been sold for much and given to the poor. And they murmured against her. But Jesus said. Let her alone; why trouble ye the woman? For she hath wrought a good work upon me. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

The objector in this case was Judas Iscariot. His narrow mind looked only at the expense of Mary's costly offering; - and why was all this waste? The objection was plausible; to some, at least, of the disciples it seemed valid. Why did our Lord condemn the objection?
