The Least of These

Posted: March 19, 2013 in Just A Thought, Stronger Together, Uncategorized

At the end of the movie The Lorax (yes I did, I have two young kids) there is a quote that is interesting. Here it is “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Dr. Seuss

That quote struck a chord. Add to that the song Kings and Queens by Audio Adrenaline and it makes for some interesting thoughts. If you haven’t heard the song, go find it and take a listen. Part of the song says “if not us, who will be like Jesus to the least of these. If not us tell me who will be like Jesus, like Jesus to the least of these.”

Jesus said in Matthew 25:45 ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 

All of that leads me to the following questions. Who are the “least of these” that God is calling you to? What are you doing about it? What am I doing? What are WE going to do together, for the least of these?

There are people all around us that hunger and thirst for the truth, for Jesus. There are those strangers around us who are in bondage, imprisoned by the chains of the world. They need Jesus. We all have someone or a group of people to reach out to and God will use us to share His Truth with them if we open our hearts our minds and do it.

Unless someone like you and me cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better for them. It’s not.
