In her interview with Time magazine in 1989, Mother Teresa said
"It's a big sadness; it's always the children who suffer most when there is no love in the family. That's a terrible suffering. Very difficult because you can do nothing. That is the great poverty. You feel helpless. But if you pick up a person dying of hunger, you give him food and it is finished."
There is a great reality that sweeps throughout the earth; It is the reality that millions of children DO NOT have enough food, clothes, and medical treatment. When I say the word 'enough', naturally everyone has a different opinion on what 'enough' is. Often in America, many have 'more that enough.' The ability to have a lunch break, the beauty of enjoying a meal with a family, and the ability to go to the movies at any time. These things are all wonderful things, and also a wonderful blessing.
However, once one sees the reality of a person not having anywhere NEAR 'enough', the understanding of this concept changes. The word enough changes to necessity and the human's desperation for survival. It is not a selfish thing to be blessed, but rather to recognize that to who much has been given, much much more will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
We know it is the duty of those who have much to give much. We know it is also the duty to enable others in the world to receive this beautiful blessing as well. No matter what you have been given, no matter what you know, may you not grow weary in giving this blessing to those who are in front of you, behind you, right next to you and across the ocean.
I hope that the next time you are enjoying a steak... ENJOY it! However, may your enjoyment of it make you EVEN more grateful, more loving and more content knowing you can serve others. Do not take the options, choices and the blessings we have been given go to waste. Eat, be fed, and feed.
