‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’-Matthew 25:40
My heart softens all the time when I hear words relating to “physical challenged”-developmentally disabled, handicapped, mentally ill, etc.. I’ve grown with many people with differenet types of “challenges”. After college-UMM, I never expected to be working (resume) at a group home for “physically challenged” adults in the same town-Morris, where I went to college for 4 years.
When I began my personal relationship with Jesus, I’ve grown in heart to “reach-out” more to people that society ignorantly looks down upon or “the least”.
“35For 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, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37″Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’40″The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’-Matthew 25
As I’ve grown in this personal relationship with Him, I’ve grown to know and see what His heart aches for-our souls to go to Heaven through salvation. Especially the “least” that our world looks down upon….
