Posted by Jerry Miller on Friday, December 30, 2011,
In Philippians chapter 4, the Apostle Paul showed that he understood what it meant to abound and to suffer need.  We are so blessed in this country that few people here really know what it means to “need” food.  Sure we might have times when we are hungry because we cannot find a drive thru restaurant, but few have to worry about starving to death.
