It’s shameful that people go hungry,
given the abundances of this planet.
And yet, there is more to life than food;
real sustenance that feed one’s spirit
should be given a higher priority.
Restraint of one’s flesh and earthly desires
can be more easily managed and contained
by the application of Godly principles.
Universal Truths satisfy the ravenous spirit
and provide the needed rest of one’s soul.
Operating under a spirit of ignorant fear
will never be a righteous way to live.
Domination by possessions and things can be defeated
via the concept of “deferment of gratification”.
Biblical wisdom combined with Godly utterance
allows one to regularly and confidently speak…
against circumstance with divine authority.
Starving souls die from a lack of knowledge -
when not in pursuit of the heavenly kingdom.
 

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Heb 4:12-13; Matt 6:25-34; John 21:15-19
