It’s February 4, 2023. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “least.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

    This came from a major eponymous Christian magazine (what could be read from a search-result list) and I don’t delve into Christian venues… yet appreciate that the author (a man in Maryland) didn’t do what some others can’t resist: didn’t narrow down to Christians in terms of who should be considered as worthy of consideration for justice: Matthew 25 gives few clues as to who “the least of these” are. They’re described only as hungry, thirsty, homeless, naked, sick, and imprisoned.

    ‘When the Son of Man comes … will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people …’

    Appealing to national leaders, says not: “will be gathered all the ‘denominations of churches’” — nor, more importantly, “will separate the ‘churches’ or ‘denominations’” or even “‘diocese’” or whatever a better word is for somebody’s idea of a global one true Church that distributes salvation.

    I am of surety “the least of these” is not the equivalent to who is hungry (and so forth in the larger context) but a subgroup among hungry fellows, furthering degree or inclusiveness thereto; mentioned for emphasis or clarified meaning — and, in this, I have diverged from the article.

      I may not agree with every word of this (other) article, but it’s a decent presentation for the chapter of Matthew referenced. The part I was talking about is far to the end. Yet I enjoyed reading the whole thing, today, and found that the reason for the sheep and the goats occurred to me (while it has never been explained in my life… and I skimmed this, therefore, don’t think it was explained here either).
