A Personal Favor
At the Twenty-Fifth of Matthew, the Savior described the ultimate judgment in terms of His remembrances of the benevolent deeds of the righteous. It appears such good works were so much a part of their usual expressions of faith that they did not even recall when they performed them. The unrighteous, on the other hand, seemed to indicate that they would have done such things for the Lord Himself, though Jesus said their failure to do these things for His own was a failure to do them for Him. With that, He sent away the unrighteous while welcoming the righteous to their eternal reward. Every good deed done for the brethren of the Savior was considered by Him to be a personal favor.
