This, I never knew

You've heard about Sodom and Gomorrah, those evil cities that God consumed with fire? I knew they were sinful and God couldn't find righteous people there. . . .I just didn't think we'd find ourselves there.

Ezekial 16:49, "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy."

Ouch. Give to feed the starving. . "to help the poor and needy" and PRAY for God to change our hearts that we not be "arrogant, overfed and unconcerned". (make sure you note: feed the forgotten in the notes section when you give)

Wow. That certainly is an indictment of Westerners... even Christians.

i'm so thankful for your words, your heart in these words...your action. thank you for taking action for those in need, especially in uganda.
we are in the process right now of adopting from uganda and someone sent me your link. i am getting ready to give with thankful and excited expectation of who it will help feed. i am truly thankful that it will feed someone, anyone who needs it...but God could use it to go to someone that could give our children a hug today, to our children's friends....to our children.
Lord may I NEVER be arrogant, overfed, and unconcerned!
