This promise is the serious need of the day.
A portion of the population gorges on gourmet food while the others starve everyday. We cannot bridge this balance but the least we can do is do our part by not wasting food and giving due respect to this basic unit of survival.
Whatever position you may be In or how much ever asset you may hold, Food is always your basic need to survive in this society. And the food is not easily available too. It takes labour of dozens of people to put a square meal for a person. Wasting food would mean the hard labour of thousands of people simply being put to waste.
Just imagine you are painting a picture. You put in a couple of hours work and do it with so much love. Somebody buys it and tears it immediately. How will you feel? Though you have been paid, will you be happy to see it destroyed.
When Jesus fed the Five Thousand with just seven loaves of bread and few fish, the first thing he did after the multitude had been fed is collect the leftovers so that nothing goes waste. As His children we should start following his lead.
A small excerpt from the Bible. Leviticus 19 : 9,10 says
When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. And you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner.
If you do not want to have the food or you have in excess, plan to leave it for someone who did not have his meal today than dumping it in the garbage.
