Jesus said, I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me. … Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. Matthew 25:35-36,40.

Showing our love for God

The Spanish saint known as Teresa of Avila taught that the way we show our love for God is by serving those around us. She felt that helping and caring for others — the poor and destitute, the elderly and children, the hungry and the helpless — are ways of showing love for God.

Her attitude reminds us that Jesus said when we serve the hungry, comfort the sick, welcome the stranger, visit the imprisoned, care for the desperate poor, we are serving him. “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these … you did it to me” (Matthew 25:40, NRSV).

Our gift to God is doing something for God’s suffering children.
