I was out somewhere today and noticed a big cardboard box on the floor. Curious about what it was, I started looking at the words and decorations that adorned it. It was a box for food bank donations. Among the food items suggested for donation were chick peas and canned peaches. Somehow, in looking at those words, I got it. I knew how wonderful it would be to receive food when one needs it. I felt what a need that must satisfy.
Whatever situations people find themselves in, the need to eat doesn't change and can't be put aside until the money comes in. Sometimes, a can of peaches or chick peas can be so important. It can relieve one of hunger and provide hope. When we can do so, it seems that giving food is a nice way to help. How lucky we are to eat.
