“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; sick, and you visited Me; in prison, and you came to Me. To the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me” (Matthew 25:35-36; 40).
We all desire that God would use our lives to make a difference; leave a mark; impact the lives of others. Too often our egos would have us thinking and praying about this in grandiose terms; something monumental; something compatible with the bigness of God. Sometimes our eyes are so fixed on the horizon of possibilities that we miss the obvious needs that cross our path each day. In the Lord’s judgment, the biggest Kingdom impact is made when we do the littlest of things for the least of those among us.
