The work of righteousness will be peace and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.
One day last summer, hiking with two of the children through the hills of north Georgia. I came to a tiny cabin clinging to a rocky ledge. Behind a picket fence a white—haired mountain woman was working in her garden. When we stopped to admire her flowers, she told us that she lived there all alone. My city-bred
youngsters regarded her with wonder, “How,” asked one, “do you keep from being lonesome?” “Oh,” she said, “if that feeling starts to come on in the summertime. I take a bunch of flowers to some shut—in. And if it’s winter, I just go out and feed the birds!”
An act of compassion—that was her instinctive antidote for loneliness. And it made her immune.
Matthew 25:45 (KJV)
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.
Matthew 25:45 (Amplified)
And He will reply to them, Solemnly I declare to you, in so far as you failed to do it for the least [in the estimation of men] of these, you failed to do it for Me.
