Famine

I may never know what it means to be physically hungry. I am an American and even as a child, eating government cheese, I was never hungry. I am in the top 1% of the worlds wealthiest people. So are you, if you live in the United States.

If I had the cure for world hunger would I only give it to a select few? Would I pick and choose the most deserving based on my own judgements?

I have know what it means to be spiritually hungry. I know what it is like to live a life separated from God. There are approximately 224,457,000 Christians in the United States and only two stepped out and told me the name of Jesus.

We have the cure for the greatest famine of them all, living a life separated from God. Are we picking and choosing who gets fed and who doesn’t?

John 4:7-14 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will
you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)

Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the

well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?”

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
