Feed the hungry

We have been meaning to do this forever! There are always men and women begging on the street corners around our stomping grounds. Sometimes I have no cash. Sometimes I struggle with how much to give.

We had been wanting to buy gift cards to hand out, but you know how sometimes it takes a while to make an idea actually happen.

But every time, even more so in the past months, that I see a beggar my heart hurts and the words of Jesus nag at my heart. Did I see Him hungry and feed him? Or not? It doesn't matter who that person is, or how needy he may or may not be. Just feed them. Feed his sheep.

The other day we bought McDonald's gift card packs at Kroger. It was important to us that they be used for food. We thought of getting Kroger grocery gift cards, but they can still be used for alcoholic beverages. So, while McDonald's may not be the epitome of health food, we know they can get several meals this way.

The kids helped write a Scripture verse this morning on little slips of paper and we put those and the gift cards in envelopes. These will all go in the Suburban. We are so excited to bless someone soon!
