Getting paid….

feeding the hungry

God:rewards obedience...

Matthew 25:34-36(KJV) “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me”.

In life we tend to do what is right because it is expected of us; we are taught that we must give to the poor, visit those who are sick and afflicted and those who are hungry we need to feed; these are some of the high need categories which needs to be fulfilled.

It is good to do all the above because the need always arises and it is an expectation, but what about doing it because we want to, not as a result of what our parents taught us as being the norm? I do believe that the sympathy we feel can be translated into empathy because these are situations which we all face at one point or the other. And if you can then remember that what you are doing is not to benefit yourself, but is for a greater cause.

Whenever our feelings are touched with the burdens of someone who is in need, the benefits will be greater than any forced obligation. But most of all look at the reward granted by our King and Savior in heaven, “Come ye blessed of my Father”. To be congratulated by Jesus for a job well done is the greatest payback anyone could ever think about earning.

I feel just about blessed to be given a chance to earn that type of reward, not because I have been there and can empathize, but because it pleases my Father in heaven. Do it just because you can as well.

Trivia: She gave him milk then killed him. Who is this?
