How do “You” Respond?


Proverbs 28:27 He that gives unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hides his eyes shall have many a curse.

Last week, my husband and I stopped at Walmart. I sat in the car while he went in since he was just picking one item up. While I was sitting in the car with the windows down a young man approached the car and asked if I had spare change? Of all the time for me to not have my purse with me. I told him that I did not have any change. I then watched this young man walk to every person and car asking people for spare change.

No one that he asked reached in their pocket to help him out. After about maybe six people of him asking I noticed that he came back to the front door of Walmart. He sat down on the ground then he laid down.

I could hardly keep still I was waiting for my husband to come out of the store so that I could get some money. When suddenly, the young man reached in his bag and open his bible to read. I thought to myself is this young man asking God to see if people would help him or not. By this time, another woman came with food in a bag to give him.

Then my husband shows up I raced into Walmart brought a sub, bag of chips and a 16 oz mountain dew then raced to the young man and gave him the food. He said thank you.

I understand with so many people begging on the streets for money it is hard to tell if they really need it or are they swindling folks. Which makes it rough as to why many people do not give. But with this young man I sensed in my spirit that he really needed help.

God always has His children in the right place at the right time.

    Exactly sis.

  3. I just wrote yesterday of a similar experience. Some are not always so accepting of people buying them food, but would rather have cash to buy what they want. I’m glad you were able to help the man in need. 😊

    That is cool, I will stop over to your page and read it. I know many prefer cash. But I will not give cash. I will feed you instead.
