It has been one of those weeks where my brain is on overload. So either I have a million ideas or my mind goes blank. I am in blank mode right now.
So I decided to share passages from the Gospels. It is the one that really resonated with me from the moment that I read it. When I think of what I should do as a Christian, this is what I think of…but I am not perfect. I have stumbled many times. But I get up and keep trying.
“…For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’…”
With everything in the world, what is really important? Siding with Israel or Palestine? Whether or not Charlize Theron is engaged to Sean Penn? Or whether or not the Republicans can gain control of the US Senate or can the Democrats keep it?
What is wrong is seeing those that are in desperate need or living on the fringe of society AND doing nothing to help them…
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels…Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty of a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’ And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
