I am often finding interesting articles that make me think, but I don’t post them here anywhere near enough. My friend Eric found this article on the Christianity Today website and passed it along to all of his friends on FaceBook, and I felt its message needed to be passed along even further.
The article talks about whether or not we should give money to street people. Since I’m forever getting myself into debates about this subject, I took a look. The article was well written, and I completely agree with it. I don’t carry much cash on me these days, but I’m notorious for handing out whatever I have. My friend Carrie has given away her kids lunches and if she’s sees someone on the corner when she’s coming from grocery shopping, she’s been known to give away her groceries, too. She’s on as tight of a budget as the rest of us, but she once worried that God wouldn’t provide enough food for her family.
Take a few minutes to read this very interesting article titled: Give to Street People? Freely. It’s short and sweet and right to the point! I hope it gives you something to think about.
