Memory Verse: “You did it for me.” Matthew 25:40
“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!
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
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!”
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.”
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.
