When Did We See
I’m being inundated in the mail and email from political hacks who want to fight Hillary Clinton. Their request is not for me to get personally invested by writing letters or making calls to Congress, but rather for me to dig into my pocketbook and make donations that will pay for producing videos, buying air time and paying lobbyists. The church is not immune to such a tactics and thought processes. On the religious landscape many believers find it easier to support another person’s vision rather than open their own eyes to the kingdom. We want organizations to feed the hungry, give someone a drink and extend an invitation. Jesus said, “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” (Matt 25:37-39 NIV)?
