Jesus was always helping “the least” and most powerless in the eyes of the world — the very sick, the little children, the poor in possessions and poor in spirit. With less self-centeredness and perceived power, there is more room for God. Jesus, humble servant, resonated with the least: Matthew 25:37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
When we spend time helping others in need, our hearts expand to care about what Jesus cares about, our desire to be humble servants grows, and we genuinely want less of ourselves and more of God!
