07 Apr 365 Days of Love: Day 59 ~ Packed Up 13,000 lbs of Food For The Needy
Today I loved others thus loved Jesus by helping prepare food box’s to be giving to hungry people, therefore fulfilling Mat 25:35.
I spent the first half of the day at Harvesters separating 13,000 lbs of frozen food, mostly meat and sea food then packing all of it up in into box’s with 30 lbs of food to be distributed to the needy.
That is approximately enough food to feed 480 people for a week with meat products.
It was a blessing to spend half a day packing food that I know will go to feed hungry and need people this week. Giving 4 1/2 hours of my time to feed hundreds of people is time well spent.
Just think of the time Americans spend on wasteful things during the week:
American now watches more than 151 hours of TV a month
Time spent playing video games, 18 hours per week
Time spent surfing the internet, 13 hours per week
Just think if Americans even just spent half that time laboring to help those in need, we would have different world indeed.
