Today With God

He shall separate them one from another.

~ Matt 25:32

Our Lord’s parable of the Judgement is wonderfully suggestive.  

There will be a great separation on that day of days. Men’s relation to Christ will determine their destiny. Great crimes are not charged against those who are assigned to the King’s left hand – the charge is that they have failed to be kind to those who needed kindness. They are condemned for not doing.

This is a startling truth. We sin against Christ when we pass by those who are suffering or are in need of help.

Another wonderful revelation here is that Christ puts Himself in the place of His friends in this world, so that what we do to them we do to Him, and when we neglect one of His, even the lowliest, we neglect Him. “I was hungry, and ye gave Me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink.”

This should make us kind to every needy or suffering one who comes before us. It may be Christ. It will be very sad if we turn Him hungry from our doors.
