This row of loaded grocery carts contain the belongings of some of our town’s homeless and street people. Such sights are becoming more and more common on the streets of many Lower Mainland towns and cities. What should our reaction to them be? Below is the advice God told Moses to give to the Israelites:
“Give freely and spontaneously. Don’t have a stingy heart. The way you handle matters like this triggers God, your God’s, blessing in everything you do, all your work and ventures. There are always going to be poor and needy people among you. So I command you: Always be generous, open purse and hands, give to your neighbors in trouble, your poor and hurting neighbors.”
~ Deuteronomy 15:10-11 The Message
