DON'T BE A GOAT by Rev. Robert (Bob) Smith

13 Nov 2020 by William Tibben in: Soul Food - Inspiration for the Week

The parable of the sheep and the goats is one of the most vivid parables Jesus ever spoke, and the lesson is crystal clear--that God will judge us in accordance with our reaction to human need. His judgment does not depend on the knowledge we have amassed, or the fame that we have acquired, or the fortune that we have gained, but on the help that we have given.

It seems that the we are furthest from God when we are indifferent to the needs of others.
