Imagine Through Repentance
Today’s Scripture: “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” - Matthew 25:45
Today’s Thought: Yesterday we considered the sin of omission after reading James 4:17; however, Jesus speaks of this sin much more thoroughly and strongly in Matthew 25:31-46. Jesus says that when we do good for the “least” of our society, that we are doing good to Him. He also says that when we do not do good to the hungry, the sick, the hurting, the isolated, we have neglected Him. He says those who neglect Him will be sent away into “everlasting punishment.” Strong words. imagine...where is Jesus in your world? When have you neglected Him?
Today’s Prayer: Dear, sweet Jesus! Forgive me! Forgive me for times I could have given You needed provisions, but didn’t. Forgive me for the times I could have shown You love and attention, but didn’t. Forgive me! Open my eyes! Let me see You in every hurting, displaced child. Let me see You in every needy soul who crosses my path. Let me see you in the devastated humanity throughout our world. Let me see You, Jesus, in all the places you want me to find You!
