Actor Richard Gere recently went undercover as a homeless man in New York City (see photo). He learned firsthand how cruel and indifferent people can be towards the less fortunate.
A homeless woman came up to me the other day as I was leaving the local 7-Eleven. She asked me for a dollar to get something to eat. I didn’t give her any money, but I went back in and bought her a complete breakfast. I find this method works best because you’re not giving them money to buy drugs or alcohol. Afterwards, she asked me to pray for her. I did in Jesus’ name.
Let us follow Jesus’ example of compassion and mercy whenever we have opportunity to help someone in need, and use that opportunity to be a witness of God’s love.
