On Wednesday some of us went to a group called Feed My Starving Children. We helped them do exactly what their name suggests. We did this by packaging meals which are shipped to countries with food scarcities.
In class we looked at the 146th Psalm. It says, “he gives food to the hungry.” While the food here is better understood as God’s word, feeding the physically hungry is still a Christian concern. The Lord himself, seeing the crowd, had pity on them and fed them enough food for twelve baskets of leftovers.
Personally, I enjoyed the work. Sometimes it seems we often forget that the scriptures urge us to work with our own hands. And there is nothing like working while knowing that someone will be blessed because of your work.
