Sitting in the Subway drive-thru I looked up to see a woman standing near the road with a sign asking for food. When I see people in need it is torture for me not to give money or offer to help in some way but in our society often times it is a lie. There are people who don’t need the money at all who pretend as if they do. There are people who use the money to buy drugs or alcohol. But what about the ones who really need it? I want to help them.
As I am sitting there pondering a young woman walks up to the homeless woman. I don’t know her words but can tell she is offering to buy the woman lunch. The woman puts down her cardboard sign and her bag of belongings and walks inside. My heart was filled.
