In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus speaks ... "For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me."
Then the righteous will answer Him saying, "Lord when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? ... And the King will answer and say to them, "Truely I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me."
