Were you ever really hungry? Think about it. Did you ever miss a meal? Too late for supper and it was all gone? At this time of year when food seems at its height of abundance and at its peak of mouthwatering delight, there are people who will not have any holiday meals. Some won’t have any meals at all. We need to feed the hungry!
Why should we feed the hungry?
Well, Jesus TOLD us to. If we offer a cup of cold water (or hot coffee) in His name, it is just as if you are offering it to Him. We tend to think He would rather us be all religious and do something that seems… well, more important. No. Just no. We have it all backwards.
To represent love, God, humanity – we need to feed the hungry. It’s time to care for the widow and the orphan. We need to shield the bullied. Let’s stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. We need to take care of our veterans. We need to be human. And it can all start with something as simple as feeding the hungry.
Spread His Love
Matthew 25:35-40 – “For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed Me. Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? And when did we see You a stranger and welcome You, or naked and clothe You? When did we see You sick or in prison and visit You?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to Me.’”
This Christmas season, and all year long, be encouraged to go find someone who is hungry and feed them. Afterwards, take a moment and feel the warm smile of approval from the Father.
If we want to be great, we must serve. God bless us, everyone!
