MANY HITS ABOUT HUNGRY PEOPLE

A little feedback from those who check this blog.

Even though I have backed off on blogging, I get the typical hits by people doing searches on particular items.

It is interesting to me that a post I put up about 2010 hunger numbers, continues to get many hits.  There are many who are going hungry in our world today, many of them in America.

I just saw a news report last night that talked about American kids going hungry.  If many American kids are going hungry, imagine what it must be like worldwide.

I will do a post on the subject soon.  If any of you have information on recent hunger percentages, please leave them here.

God’s blessings…

  1. Chris, very sobering facts. I came upon a quote that pretty much says it all.A person who has food has many problems.
    A person who has no food has only one problem.” — Chinese proverb

    I remember years ago praying for Ethiopia.I asked our Lord “How do I pray for these people who have nothing?” Pray for the soil, to stay in tact. Pray for rain, Pray fro Christians to be raised up into government in all areas. So on and so forth.Also for the Lord to reach the heart of many nations to be compassionate and give to Ethiopia.

    I came onto this debate: which really adds nothing to solving the overall problem. But it does cause thought.

    Debate IT!
    CAN WE ELIMINATE HUNGER?

    With so many challenges to overcome, do you think we can eliminate hunger?
    YES Hunger can be eliminated
    The industrialized countries have huge economies
    and tremendous resources. If they would all chip
    in, hunger could be cut in half at an affordable
    cost.
    • Given the high level of wealth in the developed
    world, we have a responsibility to share some of
    this wealth to reduce hunger.
    • For the amount of money that Americans spend on
    dieting and weight loss (over $50 billion per year),
    we could invest in sustainable solutions to hunger.
    • Because the world is so interconnected today,
    reducing hunger in the world ultimately serves
    everyone’s interests. It creates more political
    stability, and by promoting economic growth helps
    create more markets.

    NO Hunger cannot be eliminated
    • War and conflict throughout Africa prevent
    development and perpetuate problems like
    hunger. All of the aid in the world will not help so
    long as this violence continues.
    • It is not the responsibility of countries like the U.S.
    to take care of the hungry in other parts of the
    world; that is the responsibility of their own
    governments.
    • It is unrealistic to try to cut world hunger in half. It
    would cost more money than people in the
    industrialized countries would be willing to pay.
    • The causes of hunger in other countries are
    complex and poorly understood. It is naïve to think
    that outsiders can really make a serious difference
    by throwing money at the problem.

    • Given the high level of wealth in the developed
    world, we have a responsibility to share some of
    this wealth to reduce hunger.

      Hi Manny.

      As always, you have given us much to think about. This is my opinion:

      Can we rid ourselves of worldwide hunger?

      I think the answer is “yes.”

      Will we rid ourselves of worldwide hunger?

      I think “no” for two reasons:

      1) Man’s sinful nature and
      2) Jesus said that there would always be poor people (this side of heaven of course)

      I believe our hunger issues will worsen. I hope I’m wrong, but Matt. 24 leads me to believe that the world has dark days ahead. Jesus is our only hope.

      God’s blessings my friend.

      As always, you have shared important information that all should think about.
