Remember when I shared about the man who I took toys and a pizza too? Well today my husband was at the store and a man approached him for a few dollars. My husband said he didn't have any cash, but was willing to get him some food. The man said that he had food stamps already and thanked him anyway. (How nice that he was honest about that.) He then came back and asked my husband if he could have help with getting diapers. My husband said yes and asked where he lived and he told him which hotel he was staying at. My husband proceeded to ask him if he had a wife and children to which he replied, "Yes why?" My husband said, "I don't suppose a woman came by the other day with toys and pizza for your family?" Shocked the man sputtered out, "Yes, she did how did you know?" Scott said, "That was my wife."
The man said that I had invited him to church and was happy that I would be sending out someone to visit their room on Saturday so they could come to church on Sunday. How cool that we both encountered the same family just three days apart. I sense God is moving in the lives of this family. You never know who you are helping this time of year. Always be wise when dealing with people who are approaching you for money, yet don't ignore the opportunities God is handing you.
Hebrews 13:1-3, "Let brotherly love continue.
2Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
3Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body."
