First Utah legalize gay marriage, now they're actually helping the homeless? Wow, this state is looking better and better!
This is what I've been saying for years. One way or another, tax payers are going to pay for the people at the bottom of the ladder. We can either do
it by paying for the legal costs to try, convict, and jail them, pay for their hospital bills, etc.
Or, we can do like Jesus taught us to do. Help those who are less fortunate than us. Don't just give them a handout and walk away, but take the time
to learn why they're in the position they're in, and help find a solution.
I recently went through a sales training program at work. Something that struck me as profound was a lesson about needs.
Our instructor told the story of a man who's finished basement had flooded, and asked us what the man needed. There was a lot of answers. A wet/dry
vac. New drywall. Mold and mildew prevention. A sump pump, and so on.
The instructor then informed us that what the man needed was a clean, dry basement. What we had done was offered solutions.
If we all shift the way we think to look at the need, and work towards a solution from there, we would be better off.
