Empty glasses and parched lips,
My nearly empty bottle’s got
Barely any sips.
His hands are cold,
Wrinkled and old,
But the five in my pocket could warm them
Misinformed taxi and no local phone,
At least we were close to home,
Breakfast and google.
His problems were far beyond any capacity of
Mine to aid.
Thankful for a lap, a smile, and time.
Questions I can answer,
Dreams we can both share,
Morning coffee and new friends.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
How can you love like Jesus today?
