Matthew 25:43 says” 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.’
It amazes me how the disciples questioned the Lord about” when did I not”? These disciples were constantly around the Messiah everyday, He taught them everything and yet they found themselves still not knowing His heart.
What they miss was the fact that Jesus was not talking about Himself He was talking about their brothers and sisters in need.
And just like they missed the point we miss the point as well, in life people have lots of things going on they are rushing from one thing to the next thing, I use to make excuses for my busyness, but no more…what I have come to learn is that there is more to life than me getting to my next appointment.
On Wednesday me and my husband was out enjoying the day, and the sunshine, as we was crossing the street there was a woman in front of us, who was acting a little weird, I mentioned it to hubby and we stayed behind her to watch her. As we got across the street this woman almost slammed her face into the wall, immediately my husband stopped and asked the woman are you alright. She did not respond, as he was making a diagnosis, I noticed how other people kept walking by and no body else came. While this woman was sitting down and my husband still trying to get a response out of her a younger couple stopped to ask what was wrong, then an older married couple stopped turned out that the older couple just finished talking to their friend who was a doctor and so he yelled for his friend to come back.
When the friend came back the doctor began asking questions and called 911, the doctor said who found her? My husband spoke up and said my wife and I. The doctor said thank you for your kindness, he said that he will stay with her until the emergency team gets here and that we can go.
Every day of our lives I believe God opens doors where we can make a difference. Everything happens for a reason, so don’t be so hasty to ignore the doors and windows just so that you can get to your next appointment.
As I am learning, nothing that I do is that important that the Lord can’t interrupt my agenda even if it takes me out of my way and make me late.
God bless you all and have a blessed Friday!
