“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…”
“Remind them again, that how they treat one another is how they treat Me,” God whispered as I was drying my hair. I turned off the blow dryer.
“That’s a scary thought because we so often don’t treat each other very nicely,” I said. “How shall I remind them?”
“My Son already did. You can quote Him,” God suggested.
Here are His words for you to ponder: “‘For 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, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
How you treat other people, or how you feel about them in your heart, is a reflection of how you feel about and treat God. You can’t hate or fear others if you truly love God and His creation.
