The Mother Teresa quote ?If you can't feed a hundred people, feed just one?? is written in bold letters on the upstairs wall of the Houston Food Bank. It has been attributed to (and for) a call to feed people, but I think she also had another meaning in mind. In John 6:32-33 Jesus said to them, ?Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.?
I can tell you that the last few years have been some of my most difficult as life has wrenched and torn realities in ways that I could not have imagined. In the midst of the struggle, it has been difficult to ?feed? just myself. As I write this I ask, ?God, where do you want me to say that I found you in this struggle??. The millisecond after being asked to write this devotional and repeatedly the call has been to answer in this way: ?in-between in and between?.
