“Unto the Least of these. . .”

Posted: May 22, 2012 in Uncategorized

We often speak of the Greatest Commandment in the Bible, “To love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.” We often speak of the Great Commission, “Go into all the world and make disciples of every people group.” But how often do we speak of the Great Compassion?

The picture above won Kevin Carter a Pulitzer Prize in photography. The question everyone asked, however, haunted him until he finally committed suicide. The question was, “What happened to the girl?” What haunted him was the fact that he had done nothing.

I was reminded yesterday of the huge problem of world hunger. One of my good Malian friends went to our village in the bush. He reported back that all of the believers in our church (as well as the other villagers) are hungry and have no food. Harvest time is not until November. It is a chronic problem. We feed our pets better than much of the world is able to eat.

Jesus said, “When I was hungry, you fed me.” When did we do that Lord? “When you have done it to the least of these.” No one knows when we do something that fullfills the Great Compassion. We do it not to be seen of men, but because it is the right thing to do. Will you make a difference?
