Now, God could have created us just to eat mud. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. “Yes, I’ll have the mud enchiladas with a nice dirt shake, with a little bit of dirt clods there on the shake.” But God gave us an infinite variety of food, of plants, of things we can experience in this life.
Now, turn to Psalm 37:18. Take a big right turn. Psalm 37:18. Psalm 37:18 says this: “The Lord knows”-beginning with verse 18-”The Lord knows the days of the blameless and their inheritance will be forever. They will not be ashamed in the time of evil and in the days with famine, they will have abundance.” Do you know what Indira Ghandi said of India? She said that India has enough resources to feed every single person there in that nation.Some 700 million in 1980, and to export 2/3 of the rest across the world. Indira Ghandi said that.
Now, look at verses 25-27, still in Psalm 37. It says this: “I have been young and now I am old. Yet, I have not seen the righteous forsaken.” What’s God saying, here? God says, “I am the source. You ask me, I will take care of my children.”
Now, God is not obligated to take care of all the earth. God said, “I’ll only take care of those who are my children.” For example, I don’t take care of every child on the earth. My daughter-Lisa and I have LeaBeth. I’m responsible for LeaBeth. I’m not responsible for all the other children. Now, as a Christian, if I truly know Christ, when I see someone in need, or see someone poverty-stricken, or sick, I should help them because I have a proper view of God, a proper view of man. But, I’m only obligated for my own. And God says this: “If you seek me first, I’m going to meet your needs.”
