Upon watching the last segment of What Would You Do? Season 7 Episode 3 I was reminded of “…the least of these…” I didn’t remember the location of the scripture but I did remember it had something to do with helping those who were in need of shelter, food, clothing or compassion. I searched for (Googled) “the least of these” and Matthew 25:31-46 was the first link. Here’s a short summary of what Matthew 25:31-46 is about: Those who helped were the sheep; blessed of the Father, whose inheritance would be a kingdom prepared for them from the ends of the earth. The goats were the ones who did not help; they were cursed and their inheritance was the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
Honestly, reading this part of scripture would give you more understanding and clarity of what I’m talking about and how the last part of episode 3 correlates to Matthew 25:31-46.
I must say, I am not in support of the mother teaching her children how to steal. However I am in support of the women who helped the mother by giving her money or supplying her with how she can get help from the government or elsewhere.
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of 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 took Me in;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?When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’ “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:31-46
