Do Something for the Less Fortunate

Do Something For The Less Fortunate

And the King shall answer and say unto them, 
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have 
done it unto one of the least of these
 my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 
Matthew 25:40

Coming home from school,
She runs into your arms,
Handing you a painting,
A display of childish charm.

Vying for attention,
He shows you a homeless one.
Skillfully created, by He,
Who could not be out done.

You take the childish painting,
You choose the perfect frame.
You proudly then display it,
Once she's signed her name.

Yet, from His grand creation,
You turn. You look away.
You see it as unworthy,
You ignore His proud display.

So tender, yet so callous,
You toss His handiwork aside.
Not recognizing the value.
It was for this man....he died.

  1. Oh, yes...helping others is what HE wants us to do but let's not forget:

    Matthew 6:1
    "Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

    Have a blessed and fun Christmas...
