To Satisfy the Heart

We're inclined to think of hunger as being mainly connected with bread or rice—or rather the lack of it. But there is another kind of hunger that affects even more people than financial poverty or failure of crops. It is not satisfied by food packages, and it is no respecter of national, educational, or social status. It gnaws at rich and poor alike. We might call it "hunger of the soul," and because it is a wholly spiritual need, it can only be satisfied spiritually.

It seems there are people everywhere who have a feeling of emptiness inside them. This spiritual hunger is expressed in many ways —in a demand for freedom, for opportunities to express hidden talents, to be acknowledged worthy of responsibility, to be accepted and loved by others, to have a feeling of close involvement and intimacy with family and friends. People often yearn, too, to be able to display self-confidence and dominion, and to show they have the power and strength to be independent and the capability to do well.
