Feed the Hungry

I was looking at Facebook just now and saw this posting by TLC (The Christian Left):

TCL’s Morning Message:
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…
Matthew 25:35 (ESV)

Directly underneath it was a posting by a local restaurant I like:

Maple Scented Butternut Squash Bisque with Roasted Native Seafood
Duo of Lamb Lollipops over Baby Arugula Salad with Balsamic Vinegar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Crumbled Feta
Panko Crusted Tuna ” Fish & Chips, Crisp Potato Spears, Asian Slaw, Drizzled with Sweet Chili Hoisin Glaze & Wasabi Aioli

Do you think this is what Jesus meant? This is what we should feed the hungry?

I think so. Why not? No…don’t answer that. Just think about what Jesus said. Feed the hungry. He didn’t add any caveats that it must only be soup or sandwiches. He didn’t say only if they were deserving. He didn’t say only once and then they are on their own. He said: “Feed the hungry”. That’s it.

If I had the money, I would treat the hungry to dinner at that restaurant. I think they would enjoy the bisque, the lamb or the tuna.

Actually I have had that particular bisque. We had a soup tasting contest at my church last winter and the chef from that place brought that bisque. It is delicious!!!

One final thought, my goal in life is to feed people. If I had the means, I would provide free meals every day. For no other reason than Jesus said to feed the hungry.
