Giving the Most to The Least
SCRIPTURE: Matt. 25:37 “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? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’
It is so easy for us to serve those that most like us; those who can reciprocate or repay us in some way. Yet, it is those who will never "pay us back" that God tells us we are most responsible to reach out to. In fact, in the verses that follows these, He suggests that we will be judged by God Himself for refusing to help "the least of these".
