Who Robs A Food Bank?

The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reports:

A local nonprofit is in dire need of help after thieves broke into its food pantry last weekend and walked away with office equipment and cleared out its shelves.

Larry Kapchinsky, the co-founder of KidCare International, estimates this has set back the pantry about $20,000. Now he’s asking the community to help them feed needy families this holiday season.

“A whole year of preparing for this season got wiped out in one night,” he said. Kapchinsky said he was in disbelief when the volunteer called to tell him the news. “Who steals from a food bank? We would have given them help if they just asked,” he said.

Kapchinsky says the suspects went into the freezer and took almost all the items, leaving unwanted items in the freezer. Those items went to waste because the freezer door stayed open.

“What they didn’t steal, they trashed,” he said.

Some people would rather resort to desperate measures, including stealing from a food bank, rather than ask for the help they need. But thanksgiving begins with a willingness to receive. Don’t rob God of the gratitude He is due because you don’t know how to receive what has been freely given to you. And understand that even more valuable than all of the things the world has to offer is the possession of a grateful heart. Gratitude makes us rich. Possessing the whole world, without the proper gratitude toward God, leaves us poor.

Mark 8:36

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

I love you all,
