Fatten the flesh of the poor and needy with food and water, a blessing, yet temporary because he will still end up as food for worms in the grave. Fatten the soul of the poor and needy with the life of Christ, an eternal blessing because he will have eternal life and at the same time all his fleshly needs will be met. Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes out from the mouth of God. The flesh needs food and water to live, but the soul needs the life of Christ. His flesh and blood is food and drink to the soul.
Help the poor and Needy to meet their fleshly needs. Help them much MORE to find Christ.
The Poor and Needy need Christ.
