Choosing Joy, whatever life brings
Tagged: Faith, homeless
The tears are flowing…. .because my heart breaks for so many that are on the street homeless and I know there are unjust ‘judgments’ of them. We need to ‘as God’s people’ try to do more than we are doing to help whenever we can…. Diane
I so agree. It is easy to pass judgment when we pass the homeless on busy intersections with their signs. I thought this was a great example of believing the best in people. We all can do something to make a difference in a person’s life today. Thank you for your thoughts!

I happened to see this story on the evening news. So many thoughts come to mind with it. Lady Diane is Right. There are so many unjust judgements made, of people in general. When you give to receive, you are giving with expectations. When your own expectations are not met by others, judgement arises and, sadly assumptions, too. Have you ever heard the phrase “Never assume because you make an ass-(out of)-u-(and)-me”? Well! When, the homeless gentleman payed it forward, the young man who gave the money to him “assumed” he was going to do wrong. Thus, living up to the phrase above. I applaud you Mr. Homeless Man! And young man, you could learn a thing or two from your elders!
