"How Concerned Are You About Your Brother?"

MATTHEW 25:31-46

{31} "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. {32} All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, {33} and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. {34} Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ’Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; {35} for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, {36} I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ {37} Then the righteous will answer him, ’Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? {38} And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? {39} And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ {40} And the king will answer them, ’Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ {41} Then he will say to those at his left hand, ’You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; {42} for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, {43} I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ {44} 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?’ {45} 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.’ {46} And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." (NRSV)

This is the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

Let us Pray - Eternal God Our Father and Redeemer, Creator and Maker of us all - bless the words of my lips and the meditations of our hearts - anoint us with Thy Holy Spirit and show us Your ways and inspire us to live by your truth. Amen

INTRODUCTION

Tomorrow we will celebrate the birthday of the great Civil Rights Leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King was an advocate of Human Rights and Human Relations. In his famous speech "I HAVE A DREAM" that he spoke from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., he spoke of the Human Rights and Human Relations of all mankind.

I am so happy that after over three decades the state of South Carolina has finally decide to recognize the achievemenst of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and honor accepting his birthday as a National Holiday.

WE must keep Dr. King’s dream alive by Caring and Being Concerned about one another. Black on Black crime must stop. We must stop hurting and killing one another.

Therefore my question to you today is "How concern are you for your brother?"

Dr. King in his quest for Human Relations and equal Civil Rights was overwhelmed by his love for God and Humanity, and under the anointing of God Dr. King said:

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live by the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.
