He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me? declares the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 22:16
I WAS HUNGRY
Did you know?
Many of our brothers and sisters in our hemisphere live in extreme poverty.
Many of them and their children go to bed hungry because they do not have enough resources for food.
Many of them cannot buy medicine for themselves or their children.
Many of them drink water full of parasites and bacteria.
Many attend schools where less than 34% of teachers are qualified to teach and gang violence takes the lives of children.
Now that you do know you may ask “Why does God allow it? God is asking Christians the same question, “Why do we allow it?”
Not knowing has never been an excuse.
For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in.~ Matthew 25:35
The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say 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 25:40-46
