I took a walk outside for some devotional time this morning. The sky is blue, the birds are singing, and I even have shorts on!
This morning’s passage comes from Matthew 25: 37-40...
Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
In this passage Jesus is telling us that we meet him when we serve the “least of these”: that we meet Jesus in places we might not have expected to. We meet Jesus in the wilderness. Keep your eyes open today for Jesus. Even, no especially, in these days when service that includes physical proximity is challenging, Jesus keeps showing up. Share with your SPC family where you have encountered Jesus today.
I met him in the cool breeze and the bright blue sky this morning.
Love and peace to each of you ❤
