Our help for the hungry

The Christian Science Monitor

Many countries and individuals have poured out their treasure and talents to ease the terrible human suffering in Africa. But worldwide, as well as in Africa, the complex, immense problem of hunger is far from resolved. Obviously, the efforts of all caring individuals are needed. But we may not know how we can be of help other than to send contributions or volunteer time. Are we convinced that only human effort can end starvation? Is this conviction based on fact or on widely held beliefs?

As necessary as human efforts unquestionably are, could it be that the world needs even more the practical spiritual understanding that underlay Christ Jesus' solution to hunger? Perhaps a new help we can give today is a willingness to consider and even pursue that understanding.
