    You often see things and hear others do not and write about them here to make us think and pause long enough to see and hear what is around us.

    Thanks for the reminder to pause so we can see and hear.

    I’m happy to know someone who would approach this homeless person to offer aid. I think (and I will just speak for myself) I am sometimes willfully blind. Lord have mercy.

    What is as bad as being willfully blind is my first thought is usually that this will make a hell of an article…
    We all carry our own corruptions…

    I think your comment #4 is a perfect example of how even the Christian’s good works are tainted by sin, because everything we do must be channeled through the old Adam. We can’t escape our sinful nature. But, our Father is pleased with them nonetheless, because Jesus atoned for them too.

    I agree…and it makes me feel better, too. šŸ™‚

    Sounds like ‘church’ at the skatepark to me… you were being a ‘greeter’… that’s about all we can do sometimes… Be there.
    Powerful article, my dear.
    Lord Jesus, open our eyes to see faces and places where we might represent You by word and deed.

    Thanks again, Paige…just went back and she’s gone now…

    Not all who pretend to be needy are really needy but greedy….they want just to be getting even if they have no use for it. I’ve seen it when we do out reach work…but we treat them with the same compassion as we treat the others..i think that is what they are really looking for. ..that is what we all want
