“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple—truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.” (Matthew 10:40-42, NRSV)
Whoever gives even a cup pf cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple will lose their reward…
Now we, as disciples, are not supposed to do things for rewards. We do them because we were welcomed by God, but isn’t that a good thing to know?
When you do the littlest of thing for someone in need you are showing them the welcome that God gave to you.
So go and do to the least of these, and give them God’s love!
