The message of Matthew 25: 35-40, caring for the less fortunate, is especially relevant to the concerns of today (2018).

When I was hungry, did you feed me? When I was shivering, did you bring me clothes? ... If you do this for the least of these, you do this for me.

Similar sentiments are expressed in the well-known poem, "Mother of Exiles," by Emma Lazarus. Give me your tired, your poor... For when we welcome the stranger, we do this With God's Love.
