How often do you feel full? I feel full most of the day, unless I've been out making visits and forgot to pack my lunch. Being full in normal for many folks. But being hungry is normal for too many, also. In the Gospel reading for Sunday, the 5000 folks listening to Jesus ate so much that they were full! Few of them had ever experience that feeling more a few times in their entire lives, most likely. What a wonderful feeling, to be full.
This week, at the end of each day, look back and see how many times you felt full. Then for each time you felt full, put aside a dollar or a quarter or whatever is right for you as a gift for New Hope Ministries, which serves both our York Springs and New Oxford areas. Or take an item out of your pantry for each time you feel full and bring it with you to church the next few weeks as another way of making an offering, that others might experience the joy of being full.
