FROM OUR BOOK DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER
Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.
He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be lifted high in honor.
What if you knew that God could be anywhere at any time and that he could be anybody around you? How would you change your way of treating the people around you, and how would you treat yourself?
The truth is that God could be anybody you see around you; He could be the poor man you see lying on the street begging for something to eat.
It might very well be Him testing your abilities to love everybody as if they were all a part of you, a part of your family. And testing how well you practice unconditional love, empathy, and forgiveness.
“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 was naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to 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? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?” The King will answer and say to them, “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”
It’s easier to look away from other people’s pain and pretend that it’s not a part of our responsibility, but what if God looked away from us and our pain because it was easier, what if He didn’t take our pain seriously?
We need to take other people’s pain more seriously and ask ourselves: “What can I do to help this person who is in pain?”
It doesn’t have to be a big thing to matter; sometimes the smaller stuff says more. Like a hug, sending flowers, a card, or a letter, helping with shopping groceries, helping in the house, or taking that person out for a dinner, or cooking a dinner at home for them.
Our society convinces us that we need to do much, or else it doesn’t matter and is a waste of time, but small things matter, small things are important.
When God calls you to help others in need, you have to find out where and what you could change in your time schedule to have more time to serve God and help other people. Do what you can do, then God will do the rest.
