Hi there. I'm not in the business of advising fellow adults, but I shall share with you my thoughts concerning giving money to strangers who come to
us in an appearance of need.
It just so happens I was in town earlier on business and I gave some money to a young woman so your post is very applicable in that respect.
Ok, I passed a young woman sitting in the shop door way. She is not asking for money from anyone. It is a cold and rainy morning. I do my business and
see the girl again as I return. She is not asking for money. Instinctively I gave her what is in US currency $15 (£10). Why did I do this? I did this
because I am these days a very perceptive person and can tell much about a person just by looking at them. Also, when I get lucky financially I like
to pass that blessing on a little when I can.
The young lady was very grateful. I went down to unlock my cycle and she walked towards me. She greeted me and said she could now buy her and
boyfriend some breakfast. They had been on the street all night. She told me she was Colombian and they were homeless. She showed me her recorder
(instrument) and told me a little about her life. She was very pleasant.
My breakfast will be twice as nice today because of my little experience. I do like Jesus said whenever I can. I look out for my fellow man and woman.
Not in far removed charity terms, but in real life. I like that best.
I have always been a giving person. Yes, I have had the odd scam. I just developed a keener sense of other people and to be a good judge of
I like being generous, caring, compassionate and being concerned about people around me. The odd scammer will never deter me from that.
I like making life warm in this modern cooler of society. There is nothing naïve or silly about that.
