Thought Provokers: Mt 25:31-46

The Gospel for this Sunday is about Jesus saying: I was hungry, thirsty, a stranger, needing clothes, sick, in prison…..
These Thought Provokers may help you reflect on the text of the Gospel.
One telling statistic reveals the fruit of two centuries of faithful mission work: of India’s 700 million people, only 2.7 percent call themselves Christian, and yet Christians are responsible for more than eighteen percent of the nation’s health care.

God is a good worker,
but He loves to be helped.

Spanish proverb

Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
as long as ever you can.

John Wesley

In Jesus
the service of God
and the service of the least of the brethren
were one.

The late Charles Colson used to tell about preaching in a conservative church. He said, “I believe in the literal truth of the scripture and the authority of the Bible.” Choruses of “Amens” roared through the sanctuary. But he says, “Later I referred passionately to Christ’s words that we are to visit those in prison. The sanctuary was silent.”
