Here I am, almost midnight, for the last hour I have been crying and praying. I don’t understand, what has happened to our churches? Okay so this may seem silly but it is so heavy on my heart. I was on my way to work today, and I saw a homeless man. God just put it on my heart to help this man. I brought him and sandwich and a drink. Then I had to go to work , but I messaged some pastors in the area asking them if we could do anything to help this guy get back on his feet. I pretty much got told no. I can’t wrap my head around when the church became so, so focused on themselves in a way.. and not on helping others. Why can we spend so much money on buying coffee and doughnuts for members on Sunday but not helping the homeless in are town??

I totally sympathize. Our church has a homeless ministry where we feed them every other week and provide necessities like toothpaste and clothes. We even have people who go Christmas morning (My family did that several times, it was pretty cool). Ultimately, we’ve found that there are people who choose to be homeless because it’s cheap and others who are homeless because they fell into terrible circumstances. But regardless, you can’t judge those people, just love them and help out any way you can. I’m so thankful my church has this program when so many others do not. It’s helped so many people.
