So Jesus always has an effective way of getting his point across.
I love how plain the Savior’s teachings are! What makes those who HAVE neglect those who HAVE NOT? The reason: A lack of spirituality, no compassion and greed.
As I have said before I will say again, the donations continue to roll in for the President and Mitt Romney as the country continues to struggle. Does it really matter what these guys say to us anymore? Does it matter what congress says anymore?
I’m very bothered by the fact that these two guys have claimed Christianity, but their actions have not — and I’m just talking about their use of donations!
Again, the money raised could solve many of our countries problems. But instead what will it be used for?
So Jesus says this in Matthew 25:35-40: “35 For I was an hungred, 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 hungred, 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, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” — KJV.
The application is simple: Greed, lack of compassion and unrighteousness will cause many so-called Christians to miss the promises of everlasting life. God is the righteous judge of the quick and the dead which includes the presidents and all candidates and we all will have to give an account of our deeds.
To them and all of us I say, “Wake up! We are not doing this just to that poor man or that poor woman or these orphan kids, we’re doing it to the Savior.”
