Onto One The Least Of These … Ye Have Done It Unto Me
Inasmuch as ye have done it onto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it onto me.
This verse of scripture is frequently used to teach us that how we treat others is the same as doing it to our Savior.
When we are kind to our spouse, which should be easy, we are kind to Jesus. When we take care of a sick child, we are performing the same act to our Savior. When we serve our fellow man, we are serving our Messiah.
Keep in mind that how we think toward others and how we treat others is the same as thinking about or treating the Messiah. Do we want to help the poor and needy to the extent our circumstances will allow?
Do we respect others? Are we fair and honest in how we treat others? Imagine what it would be like if those others were Jesus.
The opposite is true.
If we rudely honk at others for something other than a safety concern, we are behaving rudely to our Savior. If we swear at the referees during the kids, soccer game, we are swearing at the Savior.
If we use unrighteous dominion toward our employees then we are like wise behaving the same to Jesus.
If you find yourself pricked at these words then fear not, our Father in Heaven is a kind, loving and forgiving God. Seek repentance, a change of heart, ask for forgiveness and go thy way and sin no more.
