This is the story Jesus told about:

“The Sheep and the Goats”

Jesus talked to his disciples while they sat together on

the Mount of Olives, which is a hill above Jerusalem.

Jesus said, “The Son of Man will come again in His

great glory. All His angels will come with Him. He will be

King and sit on His great throne. He will divide up the

people, just the way a shepherd divides sheep from goats.

The people he calls sheep will be on his right, and the

people he calls goats will be on his left.

The king will turn to the people in his right, and say,

“Come, you happy ones!

You have pleased my Father. I was hungry,

and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me

something to drink. I was a stranger, and you visited

me. I was in prison, and you came to see me.”

The people will be very surprised. “When did we

do all these things?” they will ask the king. “When

did we see you hungry or thirsty? When did we help

you?”

The king will say, “When you did it for even the most

unimportant person, then you did it for me?”

Then he will turn to the ones on his left hand. “But you!”

he will say, “You saw me hungry and thirsty, poor and sick

and in prison, and what did you do for me? Nothing!”

slide5

These people will cry, “But sir, when did we see

you hungry or thirst or needing clothes?”

“When you didn’t do it for even the most unimportant

person, then you did not do it for me.”

  • Are the sheep
  • On the right hand side of the King?
  • On the left hand side of the King?
  • Do the goats stand for good or bad people?
you did it for me matthew 25 40
“You did it for me." (Matthew 25:40).
  • Can you list five actions that have happened to you or that you have been able to help other people with?
  • When Jesus comes as King, He will judge the nations (Matthew 25:31-46). He said the basis for that judgment will be how people treated Him when He was hungry, thirsty, a stranger, naked, sick, or imprisoned.
slide7

Those being judged will ask when they saw Him in these situations, and Jesus will say, "Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me"

Because all people are created in God\'s image, and because Jesus by His words and example taught us that He cares deeply how we treat others, we should treat all people with kindness and compassion.

Thinking It OverOur love for Christ is only as real as our love

for our neighbor.
