MATHEW 25 MOMENTS

March 1, 2013

I am shy about even writing about this because of the left hand right hand thing, but I don’t want to forget.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 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, 36 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.’

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? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “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.’

I always give at the entrance to the freeway. Usually it’s a dollar. I try to tithe. So if I have a bunch of money in my wallet I give more. I am always reminded of Mathew 25 whenever I give. But sometimes more than others. Recently two things happened that made Mathew 25 truly real to me.

I was getting gas at the neighborhood gas station. A Native American man came walking over and asked the African American woman next to me. “Sister do you have a dollar so I can buy some rolling papers for my tobacco” She ignored him. He cautiously turned to me. I emptied my pockets and gave him about $2.50. He was shocked. He lifted up the money like a host and said “Jesus Christ”. He then thanked me and hugged me.

I was driving down Lake Street and there was a man with a sign asking for money. I rolled down my window. All I had was twenties and I had about 4. I gave him one. He took a double take and said.” I wasn’t expecting that and then said. “You know why God made women second… because any true artist does a practice piece before they make the masterpiece.”

Not everything in the Bible is divine truth but some is.
