Tough Choices

Sometimes my kids say, “We’re starving!!” To which I want to say, “Really? Starving? I don’t even think you know what that means.”

Especially when I consider these stats from a report called Hunger In America. We are in the midst of a county-wide food drive to support our local food banks, and among the clientele the food bank serves…

  • 42% have had to decide between buying groceries for their family or paying the electric bill.
  • 32% have been forced to decide between eating or paying the rent.
  • 26% have had to weigh buying food or buying needed prescriptions or medical care.

I’ve faced some tough financial decisions before, but never to this extreme. How about you?

Can you help with some groceries? I filled up a grocery bag for less than $25, and bought enough food to provide a family of four breakfast for a week, three days of lunches, and two dinners.

Please donate some needed food items (you can find a list of grocery needs by clicking here) by this Saturday, October 8, 2011. This is an easy way to show the love of God to people in need.
