Matt. 25 – A Reality Check

Refer Matt. 25:31-46


I was hungry, and you formed a humanities club and discussed my hunger.


I was imprisoned, and you crept off quietly to your chapel in the cellar and prayed for my release.


I was naked, and in your mind you debated the morality of my appearance.


I was sick, and you knelt and thanked God for your health.


I was homeless, and you preached to me the spiritual shelter of the love of God.


I was lonely, and you left me alone to pray for me.


You seem so holy, so close to God, but I’m still very hungry, and lonely, and cold.
