SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - MATTHEW 25:31-46

Matthew ends his two chapters dedicated to Jesus' speaking of the end times with the parable of the sheep and the goats. This parable portrays Jesus as the coming son of man who is tasked by God with judging the lives of every one who ever drew breath in God's Creation.

For Jesus, one's life is judged by a simple criterion: did you help or ignore those in need? Was your response "How can I help?" or "It's not my problem." I find it interesting that Jesus does not mention accepting him as one's personal savior. Neither does Jesus ask any dogmatic questions or even questions about personal morality. Surely Jesus cared about these matters, but he affirms that one's eternal destiny hinges on how we respond to the needs of others.
