Finding the individual in the crisis
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.
– Matthew 25:36
In our reading Jesus affirms that help and kindness offered to another person is help and kindness offered to him.
What do you see? What is your perspective of the needy? Do you see a child of God in need of help and support? Because how you see people determines how you relate to them. Our calling as Christians is not just for ourselves but to share God’s love and generosity with all and this is the culture in the Diocese of Chichester, supporting people in different situations because the only question that really matters is do we love Jesus and do we wish to see his will done on earth? Jesus said. “Just as you loved one of the least of these, who are members of my family, you loved me.”
