Re:Verse Passage – Matthew 25:31-46 (day three)
“Lord, when did we see you hungry?” Are you sure you want to know? It’s not uncommon for us to attempt to exonerate ourselves from the charges by claiming we’re misunderstood. From “out came this calf” to “mistakes were made” to “wide stance” to “no one told me”, these ridiculous excuses for indefensible behavior will never hold up. We’ve all tried to claim that we’re just doing the best we can when really we’ve just been doing the best imitation we can. If only God had been clearer, if only he’d spoken our language, we would have jumped at the chance to serve. It’s too bad God didn’t see that we were just waiting for direction. Is it our fault that God missed the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to work with us?
