Matthew 25: 34-45 (New Living Translation)

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’

41 “Then the King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. 42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. 43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’

44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’

45 “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’

I Might Have Missed the Savior

 

If I had been a shepherd

       In the fields that night,

Would I have heard the angels singing,

       Filling up the sky?

Or would I have been busy counting sheep

       And singing my own song?

I might have missed the Savior,

       And I might have never known.

 

If I had been a wise man

       Would I have missed the star?

Would I have seen the light of David

       Shining from afar?

Or would I have been busy reading words

       About the King to come?

I might have missed the Savior,

       And I might have never known.

 

I want to see the Holy Child at Christmas

       Bring my myrrh and frankincense and gold.

Sometimes my busy world

       Just might hide the Lord.

I might have missed the Savior

       And I might have never known.

 

If I had been a Christian

       In the world today,

Would I have seen the poor and needy

       Every lonely face?

Or would I have been busy wrapping gifts

       And singing Christmas songs?

I might have missed the Savior

       And I might have never known.
