When we neglect to care for human needs, we neglect to place just importance on others, lowering our own character in the eyes of the Lord and welcoming His conviction upon ourselves.
Here Jesus likens our conduct of those who are poverty-stricken or distraught with our conduct of Himself. What we do for others, we do for Jesus.
There have been times in my past that I would ignore someone who needed help because I felt it was inconvenient. I’m sure at some point in time we’ve all done it. We place more importance on ourselves than on what we do for Jesus.
Let’s turn that attitude around. What will you do for Jesus today?
Me: I’ll pay more attention to the needs of others. I’ll do my best to offer help when and where needed.
Your turn! Go!
