A story has been told about a woman who received a letter from Jesus telling of his pending visit. Since she was of modest means, she cleaned her small apartment and took what money she had and went to the store to buy something to serve to Jesus when he arrived. On the way home from the store, she encountered a young woman who had no food for her children and the woman gave her the food she had purchased. Going further, she saw a street person shivering in the cold and she took off her coat and gave it to her. She had given away everything, what would she do when Jesus came? When she arrived home she found a note in her mailbox thanking her for the warm coat and the food and it was signed, your friend, Jesus.
