What are you doing for the least?

A friend sent me this link last week and I just got around to watching it in its entirety.  It is extremely moving.  It will make you think.  It will convict you.

Mathew 25:31-46 

31 - "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 - All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another as a shepherd  divides his sheep from the goats. 33 - And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left. 

34 - Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 - for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 - I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.' 37 - Then the righteous will answer Him, saying 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 - When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 - Or when did we see You sick, or in prison and come to You?' 40 - And the King will answer and say to them 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.' 

41 - Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 - for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 - I was a stranger and you did not take Me in; naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' 44 - Then they also will answer Him, saying 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' 45 - Then He will answer them, saying 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46 - And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." 

What am I doing for the least?  My answer ... not enough.  I want to be in His right hand.

God is the Father to the fatherless and we are His body here on earth. We need to take responsibility for the least.  We need to care for the least.  We need to show the least His unconditional love.  We need to let them know that Jesus died for them...the least.
