What a great quote! When I first read this, the scripture that came to my mind was Matthew 25:40:
The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
When I think about this verse, what it means to me is that any time I do something, or don't do something for someone, or treat someone a certain way, it's as if I've done those things to Christ. When I speak to someone in anger or frustration, I've spoken to Christ in anger or frustration. I don't take this verse to mean just the good things that I could do for people, but the bad ways that I treat people as well. I would never dream of speaking to Christ in anything other than the most loving tone possible. If He needed my help, I would give it in a heartbeat. If there was something, anything, I could do for Him, I would go to whatever lengths necessary.
And then I remember, Jesus told us to think of all people as we think of Him. If I could actually do that, actually treat everyone how I would treat Jesus, what kind of person would I be? If we all treated each other how we would treat Jesus, what kind of world would we live in? There definitely would be some type of paradise on earth. I sure can't control how anyone else acts, but I can control how I act, and it's a goal I want to strive for.
