Our Weekly Thought - November 20-26, 2017

In the Parable of the Needy (Matthew 25:31-46), the author demonstrates a disturbing truth, namely that people in need are Jesus in our midst: to notice and serve them is to serve Jesus; to ignore them is to ignore and dishonor Jesus. I used to think that it was my calling as a Christian to go out into the world to bring Christ to others or to find others and bring them to Christ. This parable clearly says that we go out into the to find Jesus in the needs of others, and help.
