Proverbs 22:9, Matthew 25:35, 2 Corinthians 9:9, I Timothy 6:18-19

In appreciation of our friends at Food for the Hungry

Look at the face, joy evident

Of a beautiful child, heaven-sent

To parents who care but can’t provide

Enough on which to subside.

 

We can take opportunity

To help ones in poverty

In a landscape far away from here

So hunger will not be something to fear.

 

Saving up a lot of stuff

In a cache, never enough

Will never be real treasure

For it uses an opposite measure.

 

What matters is relationship

Discovered by people on a trip

To a place hot, arid, and poor

Where the norm is to live on a dirt floor.

 

They give back to us,

Our spiritual hunger satisfied thus.

They love unconditionally

And our needs are met to a higher degree.

 

“I was hungry and you fed me,” they said

“You fed me,” we answer instead

An honor forever our deeds will be

This is what sets us free.
