“Why doesn’t God just reveal Himself to us already?!
I’m so tired of answering to this faceless,
invisible being that gives us no clear instructions.”
I hear you.
Alas, there is no mirror large enough
To reflect the entire universe at once.
Where would we put it?
“Ack! Why must you speak in these annoying riddles?!?
For once, can you just say exactly what you mean
and spare me these insidious puzzles?”
OK….By the way,
do you remember that homeless man you passed today
who asked you for change?
That was Him.
“That was who, God?”
“Well, why didn’t you tell me?!?!”
“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Oh…..guess I’d better change.”
