On Earth As It Is In Heaven

"James says that 'pure and undefiled religion is to love the orphans and the widow in their distress and keep ourselves from being tarnished by the ways of THIS WORLD'. Jesus says that anyone who welcomes a little child such in His name welcomes Him. He also says that at the end of time when He comes back, He is going to separate the sheep from the goats. He says He will put the sheep on His right and He will say to them 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' Notice he doesn't say to them 'Good job. You've lived a life without sin.' He already knows we aren't perfect. Notice he doesn't say to them 'Good job. You were intelligent, successful, made lots of money, and had lots of things.' He already told us to store up our treasures in Heaven. He said, 'I tell you the TRUTH, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did unto me'."

These words were written by Katie, a 20-some-yr old mom of 13 Ugandan girls. I've been enthralled by her blog for the past 2 hours. I've smiled, and I've shed tears through the miraculous, and also heartbreaking, stories of following God's call on her life. His call on all our lives.
