We spent our time with the students that we were feeding. These were all of the preschoolers. I got to go and sit with them. Seriously, how great is this photo?
I look like Elf in this photo! At the same time, I felt like him. I felt so huge in this room. You could stand three of these students up on each other and they would be able to stand as tall as my giant 5/10" frame.
Height aside, I felt tiny. I knew that there were kids outside hoping for leftovers. I knew that even if we fed the entire school there are still others hungry. I knew that even after hunger was met, there are so many needs. It was one of those clear moments when I felt that the world didn't need Matt, but Christ. I can offer a little food and a funny photo. Lasting hope comes through Christ.
"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, 20 where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. "
