Matthew 25:35

by Serena

Would God really say, “You must pray to Me for four hours every day or you cannot eat”?

Would He wake you up at 6 a.m. and put you on the street?

Yet every day these things are done, and these are the least of the atrocities.

Do you not think He is crying for what is done in His name?

“For I was hungry and you gave me food” saving the best for yourself to take home or sell.

“I was thirsty and you gave me drink” only between the hours of 7 and 3, and not on weekends.

“I was a stranger and you welcomed me” if you look like me and sound like me.

“I was naked and you clothed me” with clothes 2 sizes too small, filthy and torn. But you had already taken the best clothes home for yourself.

“I was sick and you visited me” sorry…too much trouble.

“I was in prison and you came to me” out of the question!!!

Don’t put God’s name on your own licentiousness and greed.
