“Each one of them is Jesus in Disguise.” – Mother Teresa
Reflect back to people you see every day and ask yourself “Do I do this?
Mother Theresa, when speaking of the very poorest in Calcutta said that, “Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.” She sums up in this one short sentence how in the ordinary day to day serving of others we can have an extraordinary encounter with Christ himself!
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ -Matthew 25: 31-40
We are called to see the lost, the poor and the sick as Jesus sees them – like the dearly loved children that he created in His image.
Love them as God has loved you!
