"Lord, when did we see you hungry and fed you, homeless and give you shelter, sick and visited you………..? " Matthew 25 : 37

Here, in the portrayal of the Last Judgement, Matthew uses stark words to convey Jesus’s message. The litmus test of admittance to Jesus’ Kingdom will be our relationships with the very poor. How often did we step outside our comfort zone to visit the lonely, help the deprived , comfort the bereaved or go to the hospitals or hospices ?If so , we are blessed. If not, we are deprived of his company for Eternity. It is a stark choice.

Prayer

Let us remember all who are with the Lord in spirit but are waiting to join Him in Heaven. Eternal rest give unto them O Lord. Amen
