SUNDAY, November 22                  Last Sunday After Pentecost

Matthew 25:31-32 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. 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.

When it comes down to it, none of us can be reduced to being either a sheep or a goat, though it sure is tempting to try.

I believe that Jesus searches out every last sheep in each of our lives and communities, searching for us like lost coins, lighting lamps, sweeping out the farthest corners, refusing to count us as lost. We are compelled to do this same searching in the faces of every stranger we meet. What if we search until it is uncomfortable—and then search a little more?

MOVING FORWARD: Where is Jesus sorting out the sheep and goats in your own life and community? How will you help?
