A Wonderful Word for Wednesday ~ The Least of These

Header - Post - Go Get It In 2013On Wednesdays, the My Faith and Fitness Blog will feature a passage of scripture and questions to encourage us to reflect on how we can each live a life that pleases God and allows us to fulfill the plans that God has prepared for us.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:  43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.  44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?  45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.  46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. ~ Matthew 25:41-46 (KJV)

    Growing up, my Grandfather use to always remind us to think of others besides ourselves. Even when we received our paycheck, it was a practice he taught us to service someone with a portion of what was left after bills were paid. With this in mind, its so hard to pass by anyone in distress without seeing how we can be of service (with or without money). I pray that more people will begin to always have the welfare of others on their mind.

      Thank you for your comment. When I was in elementary school, my mother nicknamed me the “Class Mother” because I was always doing something for my classmates. The day that she gave me that nickname, I was making sure that I had extra #2 pencils for the standardized tests, “just in case someone needed a pencil.” Looking back, it’s amazing how our parents and grandparents see things in us that we would consider inconsequential.

      Your Grandfather instituted a great practice for his family. Thank you for reading. Be blessed.
