Guilt Free

I just read a post on the Compassion blog that quoted Wes Stafford, the president of Compassion International.

This is a prayer he prayed in a third world country, while about to enjoy a meal ordinary by our means, but a meal far above and beyond what is available to many, especially the children and families they were there to minister to.

I will leave you with his simple but powerful words, and pray that they stir your heart as they did mine.

We know that what we have before us is so much more than those we work for and serve. We are thankful for this blessing and promise to use the strength gained from this meal to work harder for those living in poverty and witnessing injustice.

I read that same post from Compassion...and am thankful for it. That is something I struggle with.
