Pure and Undefiled Religion

" 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.' "

I must feed the hungry and give the thirsty something to drink. I must open my home and offer my clothes. I must take care of the sick and visit those in prison. I must do these things.

I cannot delegate the responsibilites of my faith to another without also delegating the reward.

You mean there are things I "must" do? Have you gone postal?

Luke 12:48
