You Calling me Fat?

Our challenge to eat on $2 a day has nothing to do with a diet. It has to do with people like you and me, who have an abundance of food at our disposal, identifying with the 2.7 billion people in our world who don’t. They don’t just eat on $2 a day – they live on it!

Just 2 days into it, though I’ve hardly gone hungry (and yes I went over $2 on Halloween night), I have noticed that eating for me is more than just satisfying a physical appetite. It’s almost a sport or hobby. Sometimes I eat, because I can…or because it’s there. Probably an indicator of an affluent society where food isn’t just for survival (and I’m not suggesting is that it is supposed to be only that). But $2 a day certainly limits the recreational factor of eating.

Can you eat on $2 a day or less?

Can you eat on $2 or less a day? That was the challenge we presented to our Cedar Ridge family yesterday. Some 2.7 billion people in the world do exactly that – in fact not only eat, but live on $2 a day. And almost a billion people around the world live on a $1 a day or less.

The purpose behind the challenge is not to save on your grocery bill so you can give it away (although not a bad idea). The purpose is simply to help us open our eyes to how much of the world lives. My prayer is that we will all experience a perspective change on how much we really need?

Here are the instructions we handed out yesterday at the end of services. $2 Challenge
