Last night, I saw a posting which included a note taped to a dumpster behind a restaurant. The note began: Dear person who is digging through this dumpster for food. The note then went on to include an invitation for the person to please come inside the restaurant for a free meal. The note included a comment about personal value.
We have all seen people looking for food. “Dumpster Diving” became a descriptive term. Sad, but descriptive.
The note caused me to stop and think about those in need. Those who are hungry and those of us who have so much.
I would love to meet the owner of that restaurant!
“One must see God in everyone.”

My prayer is for us to talk with God about His vision and His will and His direction for our lives. Who does he want us to see? Talk about the above quote with God….how do we see God in everyone in such a divided and hurting world? Ask God to help us, like the restaurant owner to be compassionate.
