To The Least Of These

It Is Written, Matthew 25:40,  inasmuch as as you did it to the least of these, My brethren, you did it to Me.
This verse is easy to understand, and is very powerful.  The Lord tells us in plain English how much it means to Him.  So why is the average Christian pretty much ignoring what Jesus said?
For starters, how many of us know that this verse is in the Bible?  If we know it, are we overwhelmed by it to the point of helplessness on our part?  What can we do?
First of all, there are so many people in need in this world, it is staggering. We are bombarded by so many charities on TV and in the mail, it makes your head spin.  You don't know who to help because there are so many and a large percentage of them are scams.
If you read Matthew 25:34-40 for the full story you will see mentioned some things that seem almost impossible.  But there is a solution.
Try to get the volume of appeals down in your head.  Check out the category that is on your heart.  Check a few of them out.  It would be a good idea to select charities that also teach the word.  Talk to the Lord about it, and do what is in your heart.
Next, pray for these charities with a sincere heart.  Keep your eyes open for someone to help.  It doesn't always have to be money.  An encouraging word or a prayer works according to God's will.  Before you dismiss it as most people do, think about it.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
