“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, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” (Matt. 25:35-36, emphasis mine)
God’s greatest Gift to man didn’t stay in a manger. So let’s not pretend He’s still there.
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” (Matt. 25:40)
