    I am with you AggieLove. Few years ago, we moved into a house. We found the cupboards filled with cans from the bishop storehouse. We had to trash them because they were long expired. Were they trying to do so food storage with that food? or were they picking food beyond their needs? I had been a witness of the program and how much it blesses people's life. Nobody should go to bed with hunger or cold. But nobody should missuse the program. My husband and I were pretty upset that day when we trash those cans. It really broke our hearts.

    I love the fact that we are taught this principle ever Sunday. It makes us become less of the world. I would like to see Less people trying to take advantage of the system. People fall on hard times, and they need a leg up. Then there are people who fall on hard times, and love staying there. There are folks who see the free handouts, and they work the system.

    An example set for all to follow. To give selflessly and altruistically to your neighbor and fellow man when they are in need is a good practice not only religiously but culturally and socially as well. In doing so and being prepared to do so only strengthens our community and solidifies the foundations. Even as non LDS and not always agreeing with Church policies, one would be a fool to not see t he wisdom in the words of President Monson.
