This song teaches an important message. Some not only refuse to give but actually choose to add to the suffering of others by gossiping, laughing and delighting in their suffering. This is the opposite of the great commandment to love our neighbor. The Savior made the outcome of such cruelty clear. In Matthew chapter 25 we read:" Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me." The consequence of cruelty and selfishness is to be separate from our Savior.
I love that everyone in this music video changed and that we got see the outcome of charity. It is beautiful to see the happiness and joy that filled each heart as charity guided their actions. The outcome of charity is also found in Matthew chapter 25: "Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." I testify that our acts of charity and love bring a smile of joy to our Savior's face. I testify that the path of charity leads to the reward of eternal life, which is the greatest gift!
