Theme: Caring for God, by Caring for the Least of These”
What would happen if Jesus were to show up today in our midst clearly identifiable as a destitute person? Surely, there will be no shortage of persons wanting to care for him. But the truth is, Jesus is in our midst right here and now. Each day the opportunity to care for Jesus Christ is available to us. It shows up in the faces and conditions of the needy among us.
This is the biblical truth that Jesus unveils to us in his parabol found Matthew 25. When we Acknowledge that the Source of all we have is God, then it becomes easy to honor God with some of what we have to care for the needy.
