MERCY NOW/NONE LATER

“Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I day to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life” (Matthew 25:45-46).

While many seem content with a moralistic religion; satisfied having not committed particular sins—murder, adultery, stealing, blasphemy, etc.—the condemnation of God is based not upon the avoidance of these “big” sins, but the neglect of the littlest things that could have done to have made the biggest difference for someone in the moment—food, drink, clothing, shelter, a visit. God’s heartbeat isn’t as much for the moral majority as it is the broken minority—the powerless, the voiceless, the orphan, widow, and all who cry in need.
