something to eat and a little love

You’ve got to have something to eat and a little love in your life before you can hold still for any damn body’s sermon on how to behave — Billy Holiday

AMEN!

We do far more sermonizing about love than practicing it. That’s why so many of our sisters and brothers still live in the shadow of hunger.

As Billy Holiday powerfully states, we all need something to eat, and we all need to be loved. That’s where we need to start.

Let’s stop preaching so damned much and start really loving those most in need. Let’s look into the eyes of the poor as we feed them. The eyes of our Master will be looking back at us.
