“ Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire 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, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least among you, you did not do for me.' “ - Matthew 25:41-45
As far back as I can remember I was told to share. I was taught that whenever I saw an unfortunate person, down on their luck, I should give to them generously! I never truly questioned why and I simply believed that it was just the way things worked. As I have grown and have met new, different peoples I see that very few individuals believe in this universally invaluable practice. Even worse still, those that do give to others do so with a bitter heart!
As I know many others do not yet share my view of a universal “God Puzzle”, they would not recognize themselves in the faces of those they refuse or resent. They would not see God staring them in the face asking for mere scrapings. Allow me now to share with you my view of giving, of kindness and of love for ones fellow man and let it shape your thoughts, direct your mind, towards a selfless, universal consciousness!
