"Then those 'sheep' are going to say, 'Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?' Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.' Mt. 25
This passage outlines such simple ways of serving and helping others. Why not do them? In fact, to chose not to do these things is deliberating choosing to act in an ungodly way. In fact, to know the right thing to do and not do it, is far, far, far worse than many of the "sins" so preached against from the pulpit. How many times have you passed someone on the side of the road with a flat tire and said, "oh I can't stop and help them, I will be late to church." Somehow I can just see Jesus shaking his head in despair.
Okay, that is my soap box for today.
