The kingdom of heaven is like a college student who spends the whole semester watching Netflix and hanging out with friends.
When the end of the semester came, she went to her professor and said, “Doctor, I know your grading scale is harsh, and I have read your syllabus, saying that there will be no extra credit offered. But if I can do anything to raise my grade, tell me what it is and I will do it.”
The professor looked at the student, saw her heart, and had compassion on her. He assigned the student a research paper, due on the day of the final and urged her to go and sin no more. The student left, rejoicing all the way to the library.
For I tell you the truth, if you do not offer extra credit to the least of these, no extra credit will be offered to you on the day of the Lord.
