“…and He took pity on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd” (Mark 6:34).

In a poem called, “Out of Order,” the author describes how he felt when he saw a young mother and her four-year-old son standing at a popcorn machine. The mother says,

“You can’t get any popcorn, child. The machine is out of order.
See, there is a sign on the machine.”

But he didn’t understand. After all, he had the desire; and he had the money;
and he could see popcorn in the machine.
And yet, somehow, somewhere, something was wrong
because he couldn’t get the popcorn.

The boy walked back with his mother, and he wanted to cry.
