In Matthew 25, we read, ‘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?’ 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.’”
Read in the context of the current state of the world, these scriptures should move us to even greater action.
The World Food Programme has said that 2021 will be a “make or break” year as nations on the brink of starvation are pushed over the edge by the effects of COVID-19. The organization has said that the effects of COVID-19 will double the number of people on the brink of starvation to 265 million.
