The Least of These

The Least of These tells the true story of Graham Staines, an Australian missionary. Staines first visited India in 1965 and worked there until his death. The last years of his life he dedicated himself to caring for people who had leprosy.

Staines selfless dedication to the diseased and poor is inspiring and humbling. He truly personified Jesus words in Matthew 25, to take care of the "least of these". As Christians, we are to look out for and take care of those who are less fortunate than us, such as the sick, poor, disabled, and vulnerable.

A powerful scene of forgiveness occurs near the end of this movie. Forgiving those who hurt us is not a choice. God does not withhold forgiveness of us, so we must forgive others who have harmed us, or those that we love.
