The Hungry

"When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed." - Mother Teresa

Job said, "Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food." (Job 23:12)

When talking about giving a hungry person something to eat, I always consider sharing the Words of God with them - to help their hungering souls find that Jesus Christ is everything they need.

Let's attempt to be aware of those around us who may be hungry for something more from God in their lives... in the workplace, at the grocery store, at your neighbor's house. We are His hands and feet. We are here to share His love with others.
