In our gospel today, Matthew 25: 31-40, is the final judgment, where Jesus comes back, and judges us on how we lived our lives. He says “Come, you who are blessed by my father, you will inherit the kingdom prepared for you, for whatever you did to the least of my brothers, you did unto me.
Jesus also warns us that what we don’t do for others, we also don’t do for him, and if we don’t do these things, we will go off to eternal punishment. When Jesus comes for us, will it be easy for him to see all of these things he asks of us out of love, as a follower? When Jesus comes to judge our lives, how many
of these things will he see that we have done?
I think that funerals are a good time for us all to reflect on what will people say about us at our life, and how will God judge us? If we’re not quite sure that people will have a lot of good things to say, it’s never too late to make changes in your life and re-write your eulogy! It’s never too late to help the least of our brothers and sisters so Jesus will reward us with eternal life on our judgement day.
