As we drove down the road I began telling them that they are putting jewels in their crowns in heaven by their kind acts here on earth. They both told me that they didn’t need any riches, they were happy without any jewels. I then shared what Jesus said in Mathew 25:
. . . ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
There was silence for sometime in the car. I knew that they were thinking about what had just taken place and how God looks down on our kindness to others. For myself, I have been blessed beyond measure with my kind children and how they are teaching me about God's love.
