[We Are] Overlooked: final thoughts

Matthew 25:37-40 (The Message)

“When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?? Then the King will say, ‘Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me – you did it to me.”

From Max Lucado’s Cure For The Common Life

“Love the overlooked.”

Jesus sits in your classroom, wearing the thick glasses, outdated clothing, and a sad face. You’ve seen him. He’s Jesus.

Jesus works in your office. Pregnant again, she shows up to work late and tired. No one knows the father. According to water-cooler rumors, even she doesn’t know the father. You’ve seen her. She’s Jesus.

When you talk to the lonely student, befriend the weary mom, you love Jesus. He dresses in the garb of the overlooked and ignored.

You can do that.

Even if your sweet spot has nothing to do with encouraging others, the cure for the common life involves loving the overlooked.”
