Compassion Week – Day 2 Encouragement

October 20, 2009


Compassion and JusticeHello Hungry Friends!

Congratulations on making it through Day 1!  I, like many of you, found it to be a very challenging day. Guess what? I haven’t had caffeine for 48 hours now and I AM STILL ALIVE! Although I didn’t have much to eat yesterday…what I eat was more than most children will eat in a given day. There are approximately 1 billion people who live on less than $1 a day!

Check out this definition of hunger:


  1. the discomfort, weakness, or pain caused by prolonged lack of food
  2. to have a strong or compelling desire

As we each experience discomfort this week, my prayer is that God will stir in us a strong and compelling desire to be more like Him and to see His Kingdom come here on earth.

To grow spiritually, we need to embrace these challenges for the nourishment of our souls.” May this week be “sustenance” for you spiritually.

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter – when you see the naked to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:6-8

For His Globe Glorification,

 Pastor Virgil

 P.S. I’d love to hear about your experience this week.
