Someday, soon perhaps, “the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matt 25:34) because, as Jesus says, “I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me” (Matt 25:35-36) but the righteous will ask, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you” (Matt 25:37-39)?  This seems to indicate that the righteous are not keeping track of their good works because if they keep track of their works then God may not but if we forget about our good works, then God won’t just as Jesus says “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me” (Matt 25:40).  Help me reach the "least of these."
