Beyond hunger

Homeless sign in Philadelphia
Gave Cory some money and spoke with him for about five minutes or so.

 

Cory (real name) has been homeless in Philadelphia since July.

As we walked past him yesterday afternoon, i thought his sign said “beyond hunger”.

Beyond hunger is a compelling phrase for me.

Beyond hunger.

How does that speak to you?

Seems like we are always hungry

Biked home from Universal Studios yesterday.

Universal Studios construction is close to my Gym.

 

We feed our body all the time.

Seems like we are always hungry.

Makes one wonder how often our spirit is hungry and how we satisfy that hunger.

How Can You Tell?

Aha moment just now…

Team Disney
Beautiful morning for a 10-miler.

Chaos.

Calm.

 

Reading the daily email subscription highlighting things Jesus said with a modern day explanation to dissect Jesus’s wisdom, i just had this aha moment.

When we sacrifice what we gain is awareness.

Awareness is key.

The simple awareness – similar to hunger pangs when we haven’t eaten – reminds us of the gifts we have.

i’m grateful for the hunger for something more satisfying than temporary relief.

PS. Ultimately though, Jesus doesn’t desire sacrifice, He desires Mercy.

What is spiritual hunger?

Spiritual hunger.

This hunger is nearly invisible.

And yet it is often the most profoundly insidious of all hungers.

If there ever was something called spiritual obesity, it would look like unspeakable joy on the one who’s “spiritually overweight”.
