For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.'
"Then these righteous ones will reply, 'Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?'
And the King will tell them, 'I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!'
"Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, 'Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his demons! For I was hungry, and you didn't feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn't give me anything to drink. I was a stranger, and you didn't invite me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me no clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn't visit me.'
"Then they will reply, 'Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?'
And he will answer, 'I assure you, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.'

May we never have a hard heart towards those in need.
Very moving piece for this WFW.ReplyDelete
Heartbreaking photograph, but one we need to see. Last night on CNN I was watching the plight of the people in Haiti... they are still suffering so. Many of them are sleeping on the dirt without a matress or blanket; no shelter, no home to call their home. People around the world need our help, as do folks in our own communities. Thank you for this post today.ReplyDelete
for some reason I have to imagine the picture.ReplyDelete
But the word itself is always such a challenge to the manner in which we live,, shop and collect "stuff"
Powerful...the reminder we ALL need...we are spending time this summer being the "hands and feet" of Christ to those less fortunate...ReplyDelete
This truly blessed me...
