And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
My first thought this morning, before I had even opened my eyes, was "If ye have done it unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me." This thought came as a part of a dream, when I was beginning to wake up, about changing a dirty diaper. So often we only think about helping the weak, the poor, the needy, etc. What we mothers do every day -- changing diapers, kissing boo boo's, listening to the same questions 20 times in a row, reading little books, folding laundry, scrubbing floors, washing dishing, cooking meals -- we are doing it all for the least of these, and so we are doing it for Christ. I don't know about you, but that simple thought has made my entire day feel so worthwhile!
