I Bought Groceries for Jesus Today

Yes, I bought Jesus groceries today. Crazy isn’t it … and he only wanted $26 worth of groceries. I did notice that he’s a big fan of cheap, college-kid type food. He bought TV dinners, chicken-pot-pies, root-beer and frozen burritos that you heat up in the microwave. He also asked if it’d be okay if he bought stuff to make a dessert. Of course I told him, “Sure.” He bought stuff to make a lemonade pie.

This Jesus didn’t look like the Jesus in the pictures we see in paintings and on walls. No, this Jesus had black skin, really needed a shower and is incredibly precious to God. There are lots of ways you could see this man …

  • You could have just seen him as a man that didn’t have a job.
  • You could have just noticed his skin color or his smell.
  • You could have seen this man as someone looking for a free handout.

I chose to see him as Jesus. Why? Because Jesus said in Matthew 25:40, “Whatever you did for the least of one of these, you did for me.” Jesus was saying when you feed a hungry person you’re actually feeding Jesus. When you clothe a needy person, you are actually clothing Jesus. So that means the guy with the “I’m hungry!” sign that you drove past on your way to work … yes, you drove right past Jesus.

Mother Teresa (I’m a big fan of hers) said, “The dying, the cripple, the unwanted, the unloved – they are Jesus in disguise.”

Today in my world, Jesus was a middle aged black man that was hungry and loves lemonade pie. Tomorrow he may be a single mom with two kids than simply needs some encouragement. I simply need to look for him. He’s out there … everywhere.

Look around.  You’ll see him. But whatever you do, don’t just pass by or ignore Jesus.

      Thanks Debbie … my goal with this is not to say, “look at me,” but to say, “if I can do it, everyone else can too.” :) Thanks for your friendship and your encouragement.

  7. Amy O'Connor says:

    You are such a huge encouragement, Trey! In our everyday lives we often dismiss the things that really matter. I’m glad God has sent you to remind us. I need it often!

    • Trey Morgan says:

      Amy … I have to remind myself too. It’s easy to get so busy and caught up in the day that you “pass on my” like the priest and Levite did in the story of the Good Samaritan.
