Rice Day

Today is Global Food Crisis Day which means it's rice day. Remember, you eat only one cup of rice all day. That way, you can understand what it's like for 2/3rds of the world everyday. Then, you give the money that you would have spent on food here. If you cannot participate in the rice part because of medical reasons or something, you could still give. We can make a difference. Only $13 will feed a child for a month.

We are so blessed in this country. Even though our economy isn't the best right now, we still have so much more than most of the rest of the world. We say, "What are we going to do?" Yet, we still have iphones and cable. We're not exactly roughing it. It's not a sin to be blessed. There are many people in the Bible who were very wealthy. What's a sin is to hoard it for yourself.

Anyway, I'll let you know how it went for us. Comment and tell me how it went with you guys!
