How Skilled Are You To Care For “The Least Of These”?
April 1st, 2023 by INMED
Last Sunday, many readers of this blog commemorated the historic entrance of Christ into the city of Jerusalem. During those ensuing days, Christ spoke passionately about eternity’s most compelling truths. He knew that within a few precious days he would be arrested, tortured, executed – and then return once again to physical life. Of what did Christ speak? Matthew 25 records a particularly compelling theme: care we show towards those in need:
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink, stranger and invite you in, needing clothes and clothe you, sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
