"Do You Love Me?"

 Jesus asks his disciples.
"Feed my sheep."

Often our response to this is to provide food to those
suffering from hunger.

Certainly providing an immediate band-aid,
a worthy solution to be sure.
We also know that Jesus is asking us to provide
spiritual sustenance for His people as well.
The paths to providing empowerment and hope
to God's people means enabling them to provide
food for their families.

One of my personal favorite charities is

Heifer International
because not only do they address the immediate need
of hunger but they also address future needs
by enabling families to provide for themselves
and their neighbors.



'If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day,
if you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.'

Jesus said "Feed My Sheep."
Join me over at 'Spiritual Sundays'
 
It will provide food for your soul!

  3. This looks like a worthy cause. And the quote has been one of my longtime favorites. We must learn how to care for ourselves and teach others to do the same. Endless handouts are not the answer.

  6. Love the Heifer project, Diva! We've been giving to it for years. When my kids were little they loved to pick out which animals to give. Chickens always won. :)

  9. Heifer is one of my charities too!! Great minds! What people need to know about Heifer is that you can buy any number of animals for people OR you can buy 'a piece' of one of the large, more expensive animals like oxen. Together with other contributions towards the purchase of that large animal, it is then provided to someone in an underprivileged country. It's a really cool program.
