What used to be of Joan’s life
Joan sat in her wheelchair with bandages wrapped around her legs staring out the window in the nursing home. Wrinkles show on her face now, not like the beautiful young girl she once was. Perhaps she was remembering the life she once had, a large family and happier times. One by one her family members died off, and she was now a resident of the nursing home.
How many people are out there just like her? There are many, many people just like her and even worse off. Some folks in nursing homes have no family at all. One Christmas at the nursing home, a group of children from a catholic school brought small hand-made blankets for each resident of the home, they brought cards too. How sweet those children were.
Jesus said that in as much as we do it unto one of the least of these, we do it unto him. Jesus said on Judgment day many will say to him when did we see thee naked and clothed thee or in prison and visit thee? Jesus will answer and tell them that as much as we did things unto others, we did it unto him.
Application: There are many people who need someone to love them and show that someone cares for them. Can you imagine what a blessing it is for an aged individual in a nursing home when they receive even a small token of affection from a stranger and what a witness that is for Christ?
