We did not want to waste the food. In fact, we discussed how sad it was that so much food must be wasted every day in this deli, yet the streets outside had their fair share of homeless and hungry folks in them. We asked for "to go" containers and within a block we had shared our excess with people who were hungry. Their joy was a blessing to see.
Took me an immediate different direction. It has to do with a promise I read recently. It comes from Psalm 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
Your Heavenly Father wants to share excess with you so that you can pass it on to the hungry. Its not going to be just material things. It may be. The question is, are you willing, ready and seeking to receive what He has? Ask, and you will receive. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened.
