It would be kinda embarrassing trying to explain what an appetizer is to someone from a starving country.  “Yeah, the appetizer, that’s the food we eat before we have our food…No, no, you’re thinking of dessert; that’s food we eat after we have our food.
~ Jim Gaffigan

Interesting that Scripture teaches that there is something worse than human hunger. The point is made in Amos 8:11-12.

Amos 8:11-12

“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord God,
“when I will send a famine on the land—
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Lord.

They shall wander from sea to sea,
and from north to east;
they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the Lord,
but they shall not find it.

We’re not there yet, but it can be seen on the horizon.

Give it some thought.
