Winnow (Matthew 25.31-46)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “winnow.”  I think one of very clear directives in the NT is when Jesus tells his people how they are supposed to treat others.  We see the Savior plainly telling peeps in today’s passage about what it means to follow and serve him.

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.” ~Matt 25:31-46

My question is: what are you doing for others that cannot be repaid to you? We live in a society where it is “all about me.” My prayer this morning is that you take a moment and focus your time of prayer and supplication to God in such a way that he puts your heart facing outward… praying for others.  We will be winnowed one day, the good from the bad, the followers of God for those who do not follow him.  How we use this life is up to us. God has given you life for this day and you can use it to further his kingdom in so many ways, most notably for the benefit of others. Go forth and do great things for the Lord, specifically for others.

Praying for you,
