Goal: To follow Jesus’ steps
The Lord tells us in Matthew 25: 35-36; 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; And the King will answer and say to them, Assuredly, I say to you in as much as you did it to one of the least of My brethren, you did it to Me”.
