We’re now into the second week of FAST for FOOD which runs throughout November and is a response to the Global Food Crisis that is threatening millions of lives.
If this is the first you’ve heard of this initiative of Compassion you can read my earlier posts. Every 7 Seconds … and FAST for FOOD Explained.
Each day throughout November I’m posting a short Bible passage from the FAST for FOOD Calendar.
There is a theme for each week of the month and a passage to read as a focus of prayer.
The theme of week two is – RESPOND.
Ask God to show us clearly how He wants each of us to respond to the great need all around.
DAY 13 – Luke 12:15–21 – Pray to Guard Our Hearts from Greed
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.”
