Christians, more than others, due to the love of Christ that is in each of us, should be the first to reach out a helping hand to the homeless, no questions asked! Or ... that’s what I thought.
Are you worried some may be drug addicts or alcoholics? If they are, would you turn them away?
In Jesus’ name, I hope not. Where is your compassion? Your Christ-like love? “Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself“ does not mean the one that sits next to you in the pew. It is also the person you meet walking down the street you have never met.
Some people in this county have lost everything due to mills and companies closing down. Families are being torn apart.

Whatever your excuse is for not doing this is not good enough. With God, there is always a way if you really want to help with this sad situation. Practice what you preach. “With God all things are possible.” “Care for the poor and needy.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
