While The Light of Christmas is a different kind of Christmas book than we typically see, it is beautifully done and while quite secular is clearly based upon Matthew 25:36-40

36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and come to You?’
40 “The King will answer, ‘Truly I say to you, as you have done it for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you have done it for Me.’

This illustrations, while uncomplicated are charming and lovely.
