‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
Matthew 25:45

These are the words of judgement pronounced by Jesus in His Parable of the Sheep & Goats (Matthew 25:31-46). C.S.Lewis comments about this in his 'Meditations on the Psalms' something that i think is worthy of our attention & thoughts.

"This can leave no conscience untouched, for in it the 'Goats' are condemned entirely for their sins of omission; as if to make us fairly sure that the heaviest charge against each of us turns not upon the things he has done but on those he never did - perhaps never dreamed of doing."
