According to World Vision, 736 million people live in extreme poverty on less than $1.90 a day. More than half of these live in Africa and 40 million in the United States. Globally, 1,000’s of children die each day from poverty. The lack of food is the main cause of death in the world. Our Lord told us that at His return He will judge people by their treatment of the poor. Jesus said this, found in Matthew chapter 25: “The King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’ Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’ And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.” True followers of Christ help reduce hunger in the world.
