He walks along the busy streets of Guatemala City. He has ten siblings, and the family struggles. He was excited to go to school this week – it was a first for him. But a strike has cancelled classes so he must work. His mother sells vegetables at the market so he carries some in a bag to sell to whoever will buy.
But his isn’t the story here. It’s the man next to him. Cesar could have purchased an avocado. Instead, he fed the boy. And purchased food for his siblings too. That’s what love does.
And I ask myself, who am I feeding today? I pray to be like Cesar. I pray to see the need that’s bigger than the need around me. How about you?
