James 2:14-18- What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but does not have works? Can this kind of faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, keep warm and eat well,” but you do not give them what the body needs, what good is it? So also faith, if it does not have works, is dead being by itself. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith without works and I will show you faith by my works.
As James, the brother of Jesus, spoke (in the passage from his letter above)... saying and doing are two different things. This is the conviction of LLIFTT. To say to a hungry person "Have a wonderful day. God Bless!" and then to walk away and leave that person hungry is wrong. However, LLIFTT is also conscious of the fact that we will not have enough money or food to feed every starving person in the world.
To accomplish the task of feeding the hungry, LLIFTT will do it's best to identify who is actually hungry. Wanting or craving food and starving are two completely different things. LLIFTT will, with compassion and understanding, make a distinction between the two. Along with feeding the hungry, LLIFTT will strive for the greater need which is to lift the hungry to the point in which they can feed themselves and eventually to the point which they can begin to feed others.
