Matthew 25:40

On a particularly hard day working at Star of Hope's Women and Family Emergency Shelter a few years ago, I paused in my day and prayed to God, "Please, Lord, let me see these people as YOU see them."  Later, as I sat at my desk and wrote this poem, I knew it was His answer to my prayer...

Matthew 25:40

God spoke to me today, He said, "Give me shelter."
God spoke to me today, He said, "Clothe me."
God spoke to me today, He said, "Feed me."
God spoke to me today, He said, "Love me."
God speaks through all those around me--when they ask for something and I give it--I am giving it to my Lord.

"The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least
of these brothers of mine, you did for me." -- Matthew 25:40
