man on the moon

Tuesday July 28th, 2 Kings 4:  42 A man came from Baal Shalishah, bringing the man of God twenty loaves of barley bread baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new grain. "Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said.  43 "How can I set this before a hundred men?" his servant asked.  But Elisha answered, "Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the LORD says: 'They will eat and have some left over.' " 44 Then he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD.  Forty six years ago we put a man on the moon.  When the idea was proposed by President Kennedy, the response from the scientific community was disbelief, and cries that it couldn’t be done.  Once the idea was accepted that it could be done and the focus was put on how it could be done, things began to happen.  What if we applied the same drive to eliminate hunger in the world?  We are still focused on whether it can be done, not on how it can be done.  We have however found lots of money to build an impressive military machine, which many feel we need given our wars of choice. When all people eat and have some left over, terrorism can gain no foothold.  It is far less expensive to feed, clothe, educate and provide healthcare than it is to protect, kill and defend our status quo. We should be throwing our nation’s wealth behind fighting terrorism in a way that works rather than just testing weapons systems that don’t.
