What’s for breakfast: a boiled egg with wheat toast or yogurt with blueberries and granola or toast with peanut butter and a banana? I’m not a big breakfast person but know I should eat something to raise my energy level. Then I thought of those millions who would appreciate just having breakfast. Their primary concern is not what to eat, it’s survival. Those people live like the wild birds and animals. Squirrels, rabbits, armadillos, possums, raccoons, skunks, bobcats and coyotes and sometimes deer visit my yard, always looking for food and water. While I sometimes skip breakfast, I know in a few hours I will eat again. Every hour of the day, hungry people’s whole existence, like the birds and animals, is spent searching for food and water. God did not intend the world to be this way. His intent was plenty of healthy food and clean water for each of his beloved ones. We can’t feed all the hungry but we can donate to our food banks. Feeding the hungry is being the hands of God!
