In Genesis 18: 1-5, we see how quick Abraham recognized the three men that were passing by. He knew they were no ordinary passerby. He recognized the Lord. And offered to entertain him. Lot also did the same thing in Genesis 19: 1 -2.
How many times has the Lord passed us by and we turn down His offer for help, looked down on Him and insulted Him?
Is it because He came in form of a beggar? a person of lower status? a person who needed your help and you didn’t have time?
We are created in the image and likeness of God and whatsoever you do to others, you do to Jesus.
Matthew 25: 34 – 45 sheds more light on this.
Then I, the King, shall say to those at my right, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, into the Kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world. For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me water; I was a stranger and you invited me into your homes; naked and you clothed me; sick and in prison, and you visited me.’ “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Sir, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you anything to drink? Or a stranger, and help you? Or naked, and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?’ “And I, the King, will tell them, ‘When you did it to these my brothers, you were doing it to me!’
Then I will turn to those on my left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. For I was hungry and you wouldn’t feed me; thirsty, and you wouldn’t give me anything to drink; a stranger, and you refused me hospitality; naked, and you wouldn’t clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’ “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’ “And I will answer, ‘When you refused to help the least of these my brothers, you were refusing help to me.
Let us be full of compassion and love more and more. Render help to those in need and look down on no-one. Don’t get weary of doing good. Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap.
Have a wonderful day, family.
