“Can you give me any money?”
My wife looked at the homeless guy sitting on the curb and said, “You look hungry.”
“Yeah, do you have any change?”
“What do you like to eat?”
“I’ll be right back.”
She came out of the store ten minutes later with a meal for the guy. Why didn’t she just give him money? Because she knew he’d probably buy booze. Knowing that would have been a good excuse to refuse and keep on moving. Which I do. Which most people do.
Jesus says a cup of cold water given in His name has significance.
Or as St. Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary, use words.”
