Serving Others

Each person you meet is Jesus in disguise. -Mother Teresa

Well...I disagree and agree with this reminds me of the verses in Matthew 25.

Matthew 25:35-40:
"For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you

took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came

to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or

thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or

when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You? And the King will answer and say to them.

'Assuredly I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."

When we help others and serve them, Jesus says we are serving Him. So I agree with her that in a sense every person who needs help can be seen as Jesus, that we are doing it for Him and to Him. I just don't want to get to carried away and say it IS Jesus Christ. Because I know that my Jesus is in Heaven with my Father. :)
