I saw Jesus Yesterday

I saw Jesus yesterday!

He asked me for a tissue to blow his nose.

But I was too busy to give him one.

Oh, my excuses were many.

But Lord, It was 6:00! I had already worked an 11 hour day! There were nurses around! One of them could have given Jesus His tissue!

God's answer was immediate: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in Heaven." (Matt 5:16)

But Lord, I was already an hour late sending out the Nugget! I just couldn't take the time . . .

"For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings." (Hosea 6:6, NIV2)

Oh, but Lord, I still had charting I had to do before I could finally go home! Rob was waiting at home for supper! As it was, we didn't eat until 6:45!

"For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink," (Matthew 25:42, NIV2)

But I still wasn't done: Lord, I truly didn't know it was You . . . All I could see was a patient sitting in the hallway . . . If I had only known . . .

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me." (Matthew 25:45, NIV2)

I saw Jesus yesterday, but when He asked me for a tissue, I turned and walked away.

"And the King will reply, 'truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'" (Matthew 25:40, NIV2)

Think about it!
