《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Mat 25:40)
Meditation one: Why God remembers whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters? It is because that you are doing for the “least” whom Jesus values—they are people who are overlooked, rejected, despised, excluded by ordinary people, and these people are not far from us and within our sights. Do we do for them like Jesus did for us? Our good deeds are not the proof of salvation, but they are the proof of having the life of Christ.
Meditation two: Where is Jesus today? Is He in a beautiful church, or a comfortable Christian fellowship or a prayer meeting? He is in a poor community, in a patients’ hospital, in a prisoner’s cell, and in a broken heart. Jesus is at the place where we serve God and people. Our attitude towards Jesus is manifested in our attitude towards His brethren.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for making known to me to prepare for where I will spend eternity in the future. Please open my spiritual eyes and ears so that I can see and hear the needs of those around me, and be willing to care, serve, and love them with actions. I pray in the holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
