A Blessing Missed

Being Homeless is not the burden one might believe yes it has its drawbacks the biggest is which most people will never take you seriously about anything you have to say,Nor will anyone ever really place their trust in you.this can be vexing to a mans spirit if He lets it,every time I see one of my homeless people talking to themselves I ask myself at what point did they get tired of trying to talk to others,or at what point did they get tired of being patronized,both of which can be very disheartening for a person who feels alone in the world.I have studied people and their interactions with the homeless for 20+ years and do consider myself somewhat of an expert on the subject.I do not however put all people into the same category.there are those who don't know how to interact with the homeless mainly because of stereotypical fears they think that somehow all homeless people are mentally deranged or violent drunks or drug addicts.and in some cases they are correct,in many they are not.The Church is the worse In my opinion at interacting with the homeless for the simple reason that it is their duty,as christian to avail themselves in every help them know matter what the need ,Imagine if Jesus Had said of the I can't cast out His demons why he's a mad man.the apostle Paul said I was All things into all men that some might believe,Church you are truly never going to be able to pull Men from the mire unless you yourselves are willing to get dirty,You can feed them dinners not just during the holidays but everyday of the year and accomplish nothing if you are unwilling to sit and sup with them,If Yesterday you counted unto you a blessing to have feed some poor soul yet you feared having a conversation with him because he had an air of liquor about him or he acted a little crazy you truly missed the blessing The Lord of Host Had For you
May you be Blessed in all you do If indeed it is From your Heart

  1. thank you,u have said it well.this is the problem i run into with local churches.they feed our homeless friends in the park 2 times a month.and on thanksgiving and christmas.i guess to make people think they care,make themselves feel better.same churches i cant get to open the doors when its freezing cold and carson city nv mens shelter still not open.then to ask me to come to their church sunday morning is a slap in my face.why would i go to a church that looked down on us when we were homeless.why would i go to a church that thinks its ok for our homeless to sleep outside at 9 degrees.why would i go to a church the refuses to help me get my homeless friends into the unopened mens know im all for helping other countries with their hunger,homeless,flood and earthquake problems.but not before i help the homeless guy who lastnight slept on your very on church steps in freezing day i hope the church will wake up.take care of your own hurting before u fix the hurting of the world.what good is it to step over a hurting brother or sister on your way to help someone else.
