One cold evening, a little boy of about seven was standing out in front of a window looking in with awe. The small child had no shoes on and his clothes were mere rags.
A young woman passing by saw the little boy and could read the longing in his pale blue eyes. She took the child by the hand and led him into the store. There she bought him new shoes and a complete set of warm clothing. Then she took him next door to a cafe and fed him.
They came back outside into the street and the woman said to the child, “Now you can go without feeling the cold.”
The little boy looked up at her and asked, “Are you God, Miss?” She smiled down at him and replied, “No son, I’m just one of His children.”
The little boy then said, “I knew you had to be some relation.”
“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 took me into your home.”
“I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear.”
“I was sick, and you took care of me.”
“I was in prison, and you visited me.”
Matthew 25: 35-36 (G.W.)
We have all heard or read this passage many times. The real question is: have you ever acted on it? If you haven’t I would encourage you do so as the reward is far greater then you could ever imagine.
