Do You Want To Be Great?
Do you want to be great, feel great and really make a difference in the world around you? Do something for someone that could never repay you. If someone repays you then that’s your reward. The best reward is when God Himself repays you. You can take His Word right to the bank, because He is watching over it and He is not a man that He should lie.
Together, let’s pray from Matthew 25:31-46:
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 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, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ “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.’ “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
Father, you are great. Thank you for teaching us how to be great too. Life is like a vapor, here today and gone tomorrow. All the wealth that we could possibly accumulate will be meaningless, if we don’t use it in accordance with your Word.
Lord, give us your eyes for humanity. Let us see a need around us today. Please don’t let us walk on by. You were the most important person that walked the earth and your love for mankind is beyond our human comprehension. Help us to be true Christians, not just in Word but in deed.
The people we meet today, we may never know what they have been through or what their tomorrow will bring. Help us to look with your eyes Father. You put those words in red in our Bibles for a reason, they were important. Use us to help another today we pray.
Have A Blessed Day Beautiful People, For this is the Day the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it. Remember you are on an assignment-eyes open.
