Prior to my daughter coming home for the Easter weekend, she had called and asked if I would make a hair appointment for her at my salon. The day after she arrived in town was the day that she was scheduled to go to the salon. When we got ready to go I offered to drive my car. As I was driving her to the salon, my little orange light came on to alert me that there was an issue with one of my tires. I remember saying to her ” that’s strange, my tire light just came on.” I had decided that since her hair appointment was for 2:00 PM and it was already 1:45 PM that I would just wait until after her hair appointment to go by the gas station and take a look at my tires. I figured at most it was just a slow leak in one of them.
Well so much for what I thought! Literally, within one to two minutes after my warning light came on we heard a loud sound. Our car was still rolling smoothly so we did not consider that it was the tire. My daughter said ” mom what did you run over”? I had been paying close attention to the road so I knew I had not run over anything. I was just as perplexed as she was.
Matthew 25:35-45 (ESV)
35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
1 John 4:11 (NIV)
