The Long Walk

20121129-002628.jpg

Forty Days. Forty Nights.

No food.

That’s a long time. Thats a long walk

It was mentioned to me the other day that we gloss over some parts of the bible that we think we know, the fact that Jesus went without food for forty days can be easily forgotten. We tried making Elvis, our pet alien (pictured)live without food for a while. He didn’t thank us for that experience.

But anyway.

While this is a fairly famous Sunday School story about Jesus resisting temptation, do we forget about the fact that Jesus was probably totally starving at the same time? I dont know about you, but when I’m that hungry – I suddenly stop caring that much about anything else rather then food. I guess I’m just glad that Jesus is more focused then I am.

If you want to help people who are hungry, I’d suggest checking out what The Trussell Trust (Foodbank) and Tesco are doing this weekend.
