“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'” (Matthew 25:41, NIV).
An unfortunate reality in our culture is that we tend to equate the value and worth of a person with their ability to produce and perform. But in God’s eyes, a person’s value is not determined by their ability, but rather they are valuable because God has created them in His image.
This is one of the reasons why Jesus, instructs us to live life with an acute awareness of “the least of these.” They too bear God’s image and have immeasurable worth. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to give us eyes to see this reality this week!
