Word of the Day: Famine

Dec 6, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

FAMINE – a situation in which there is not enough food for a great number of people, causing illness and death, or a particular period when this happens

There is hope—God does live—and there is a believable voice to those who have faith and the will to believe. Certainly we live in a day of famine, as described by Amos, when “they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:12.) Nevertheless, in what appears to be a spiritual famine, there are many who have found a spiritual abundance.

Scripture: Psalm 37:19

“They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, and in the days of famine they will have abundance.”


“You can’t brace yourself for famine if you’ve never known hunger.”

— David Sedaris
