Jesus says in Matthew 25:44-45, “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’“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.’ (NIV) You’ve heard these powerful words hundreds of times. And while you may rightly focus on the part of the parable that focuses on the importance of helping those on the margins, there’s more to it. Jesus is making that radical claim that you will actually be helping or harming Jesus as you serve or fail to serve those who are most hurt by the world. That’s something to think about as our world slowly begins to re-open in the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. And here’s why. How responsibly you act around others in the coming months of a COVID-19 world does not just impact them – it impacts Jesus as well.
