“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'”
Matthew 25:34-36 (context)
I hate getting cold and wet. But worse than getting cold and wet is staying cold and wet. I know this especially from backpacking, when you have no options besides what you brought along. If everything is soaked, there’s no drying out. Imagine being a cyclist on tour, out on the road far from friends or warm accommodations, and getting caught in a downpour. Even on a nice day, the opportunity to take a hot shower, eat a good meal, and sleep in a bed could really make a difference.
