The Least is not a negative phrase or term, but rather how Jesus described those we should be caring for in Matthew 25:40. In fact, as sinners, we all probably fit that description at some point in our lives. But, more so the least describes the human condition, a state of being that any one of us could find ourselves in. A state of needing our brothers and sisters to lift us up in prayer, or in need. Jesus described the hungry, the thirsty, a stranger, or someone needing clothes, and the sick and imprisoned among the least of our brothers and sisters.
