Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for this, Scott.

Ditto here, Scott.

I've been doing some thinking about a "theology of giving". The reality is we're happy to give away crap because it doesn't really cost us anything. (I do my best thinking on the subject when I'm driving around picking up stuff that people want to "donate" to our ministry... or throw out.) It's perfect - we get rid of our garbage AND get to feel good about giving. I know you're talking about food here, but I think there are ties.

When will we understand that giving is supposed to cost us something?

I'm reminded of the Israelites wandering in the desert. God gave them enough mana for that day. If they tried to save it, it spoiled. We really don't think about it, but food is a good analogy for our spiritual lives. "Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you."
