"Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’"

I wonder where there may be people who need food and water?
I wonder if you ever act like a goat?
I wonder if you could think of ways to help love God's people?
I wonder if you make excuses to not help God's people?
I wonder if you make a difference for people who are bullied and put down?
I wonder what Jesus thinks about the word "poor"?
