Helping Down and Outs

Read story before scrolling down

I was walking down the street, and in front of me was one of those people you often see in cities these days, wearing torn clothing and toting two plastic bags. My heart went out to this person.

Remembering my Christian upbringing: "Care for the needy, feed the hungry and clothe the naked", I felt I had to reach out to this person.

It's true that some people don't see past the rags, but I saw one of God's creatures in all its beauty. As I walked behind this person, an inner voice urged me to "Reach out", so I did.

A mistaken identity and my recovery in hospital

I regret reaching out now, but I'll be up and about in a few months time.
