Did Not Do It by Kirk Hunt
“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
Standing before the throne of God, folks will find out they did not do it. They did not serve the brothers and sisters of Jesus. Not because they did not serve, but because they made decisions about who they would serve.
Father-God loves all of His children. The neat and clean kids have no better grip on His heart than the messy and dirty children. No father or mother, worthy of the title, would appreciate you mistreating one of their precious offspring.
Scripture tells us that Father-God sees us as His children. We are siblings of Jesus. How we treat each other, reveals how and why we love Jesus.
There, before the throne of God, your acts of service will be evaluated. Will he set you on His right hand or His left hand? Will He say you did, or did not, serve Him through the least of these?
Think: God cares for all His children, even the ones we do not value.
Pray: “Father-God, help me to deliver Your care and concern to everyone I meet.
