In the 21st century, we do not have a lack of food. Food insecurity does exist in America, but 39% of those living with food insecurity are obese. Why? Perhaps, the problem is simply the ineffectual distribution of food to the masses. Or could it be the food industry wants you to believe that hunger is a virtue, so you’ll continue to consume more sugar, salt, and fatty foods in quantity. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness/justice." Was Jesus talking about hunger literally or spiritually? Join us as we continue our worship series on the eight Beatitudes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Today, Pastor Tony Minear, Ph.D. explores hunger and our response to it. Do we have a moral responsibility to live out this Beatitude? And, if so, how? Listen and discover the one metric the food industry doesn’t want you to know about. Are we getting in our own way of living out the Beatitude by focusing on the wrong outcome?
