remember people

I just had an encounter with a homeless person. Tears were the heavy part. I wont get into the details because i gave him a lot of what was personal to me, including gifts from my friends i will never get anything close to again.

Remember people, remember those whose lives where something once but because life happened their lives became nothing.

Remember them because like you their life was once something, but a day came when everything sank to the ground and they found themselves lower than the soil beneath their feat.

Remember them because to love God is to love one another and not look away in shame or disgust. Remember them for God probably hears their cries faster than he hears your requests, remember them for you are your brothers keeper. Good night guys

  1. I remember reading a quote that said, “You have not truly lived until you have helped someone who will never able to pay you back.”

    This post is a good reminder of that. Thanks for sharing.

    God bless you Russell

  2. What a wonderful thing to do Russell! I agree with all you said, what a beautiful post this is πŸ™‚ We all should just “put ourselves in their shoes”, it could very well be us someday, we never know.

    1. Lucky Dube said, “Do good to the people on your way up the ladder for you will meet them on your way down”. We all should have room in our hearts to hear out peoples stories for it is not always money that matters but the affection of the heart that can change ones life

  3. ( smiling ) Amen! Thank you for sharing Russell. This moved my heart as I speak such things to my children. Never pass judgement on people when you don’t know their story.

    Blessings to you my friend! πŸ™‚
