As A Poor Black Man on Death Row by Marylyn Felion
Maryln Felion's painting, Christ As A Poor Black Man on Death
Row, reminds me of Christ's words in parable: "For
I was hungry, and you offered me food. I was thirsty, and you brought
me cold water to drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me in. I was
without clothes, and you clothed me. I was ill, and you cared for me.
I was in prison, and you visited me."
Those who heard these words were perplexed by them, and asked: "Lord,
when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you something
to drink? When did we see you as a stranger, and give you shelter; or
needing clothes, and clothe you? Did we ever see you ill, and take care
of you; or in prison, and visit you?"
To this the answer came:"Truly, I tell you now, inasmuch as you have
done these things for the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done
the same for me."
