Sharing a meal together is one of our greatest traditions. In most religions, the meal plays an important part in celebrating the faith. As Americans, we celebrate our bounty and our graces with the Thanksgiving meal. And yet, as important as breaking bread together is to us, there are still those around us who live from day to day not knowing where or how they will get their next meal.
As we close tonight, let's commit ourselves to reach out a little bit more to those around us in need. Dig a little deeper when someone asks for help. Remember that we are blessed and our blessings are not our own doing but come from God.
So the next time you see a homeless person or an unkempt child in the streets, remember that they need us and we can help them. Lend a helping hand.
