Love The Least Of Thee

Hey Peeps.

Matthew 25:32-40
"And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

I was reading this scripture in the bible and it really spoke to me. A lot of times when we see people that are in need of help, we don't want to give up our excess to help those in lack. This doesn't necessarily mean that every homeless person on the street you need to be shelling out money on. However, giving cans to a food shelter can make a world of a difference. A small action can have a big reaction. 

But it needs to begin at home, for each of us. We all have someone, most times a relative that is in a place of need. Instead of spending on yourself all the time, why not take time to help your family. Life is about symbiosis. A harmony between helping others and having others help you. You see we all go through down periods in our life but we should all take comfort in knowing that we will be there for each other. 

Sorry if this came off a little jumbled but moral of this is 
"The least you do to my brothers and sisters, you do to me; your father which is in heaven."
