  1. Amen to that:

    Matthew 31-46
    31“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
    32All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
    33And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
    34Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
    35for 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;
    36I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
    37“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
    38When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
    39Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
    40And 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.’
    41“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
    42for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;
    43I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
    44“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
    45Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
    46And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

    1. Amen! Amen! Amen! This scripture bears repeating over and over and over.
      There is no Christianity without the New Testament and it appears that so many of us have forgotten all about it.
      As promised, I am going to fashion the scripture that you quoted into a post of its own. It is so apropos. I will be sure to link you when I do.
      BTW, what makes this scripture so poignant is the fact that so many people use the word “sheep” in a derogatory way—but, alas, the Messiah had a different point of view.
      All the best my dear friend! Kisses to Mrs. Sheila!

      1. It’s one I remind myself of when I get uppity and grumpy (not a regular event only ….err…mebbe once a day😏).
        Thanks for Gwin including me in a post, that’s cool and I really appreciate it😀. In your own time of course.
        The ‘Sheep’ thing and its newer form ‘Sheeple’ shows folk don’t understand sheep. For a start off there are all sorts of breeds and some of them and very, very stubborn; I’ve seem them used in Sheep Dog trials and they do give the dogs some problems🐑!
        Secondly they are pretty shrewd about how to up end garbage containers of all sorts to get at goodies.
        And finally, what folk don’t get. is that they are social animals who have worked out they are at the business end of a food chain, so by sticking together there is strength.
        Bit hard on goats though, they are characters and somewhat rugged individualists being linked to mean humans is a unfair on goats if you ask me.
        Sheila says thanks and sends hugs and kisses back to you and yours.
        Take care Gwin🙏

        1. Roger, I love your elaboration here. These are things that I had no clue about.
          I might be a Southerner, but I am lost on agrarian references.
          I always learn so much from you my friend. I truly appreciate your wisdom and guidance.
