Someone writes in answer to the question who are the hungry: “Statistics provide part of the answer: let me share some numbers with you, just because they are important for us to know. The hungry are 1 billion people who don't get enough. The hungry are 27 children who starve each minute. [The hungry are the 3 million children under 5 who die each year because of poor nutrition.] The hungry includes the 25 million who could be fed by the tons of grain used annually to produce alcohol in US. The hungry include some of 30 million Americans who live below the poverty line. “So who are the hungry? Behind the statistics are the faces of real men & women, especially children. They are disparately poor. They have a permanent ache in their belly & hopelessness in their eyes. You will not likely meet many of them because most of the 1 billion live far away, speak a different language, & live in a different culture. They seem to be on a different planet. But the Bible tells me they are my brothers & sisters, & we ought to think of them that way. [Think of them] as if [we] all sit at the same dinner table & can pass each other milk or vegetables when it’s asked for.” Well, we just observed World Food Day & will be observing our annual denomination’s world hunger awareness week & Sunday at the end of the month. So we must listen to what God says in His Word what must be our response to the world hunger. & we do so by considering Jesus’ parable in Lk.16 that pulls no punches about the eternal consequences of closing our hearts & hands to the needy. About living in such a way that we deprive them of the necessities of life. Therefore we want to look at THE RICH MAN CONFRONTING LAZARUS & we see 3 truths: 1st, his conduct is sinful; 2nd, his end is awful; &, 3rd, his excuse is foolish.
