“The parable of the long spoons encouragesthe nurturing of others as a means of nurturing ourselves. It’s the ethic of reciprocity.”
Years ago, I saw a version of the above illustrations that made me stop in my tracks, and say “YES!” So often there are folks who are only out for themselves. Then there are others who feed the least of these. Feeding people is not just about the physical food we eat, but about the spiritual food we serve to nourish and encourage others, whether through the messages we write, the pictures we paint, the photographs we snap, the people we visit who are lonely, the litter we pick up, or those we teach. Together, we are better and stronger. Each one, feed one.
