Give her something. I recognized that inner voice as Jesus’.
But she looks like she would spend it on drugs, I protested as I kept walking.
Well then, buy her some food.
Just then I came to a hot dog stand. Okay, I’ll do it for You.
I hurriedly ordered a hot dog and took it back to her. As I handed it to her, I told her that Jesus loved her and offered to pray for her. She accepted, and we bowed our heads and prayed right there on the street.
Several days later I stopped for a hot dog at the same stand, but the vendor wouldn’t let me pay. “I saw what you did the other day,” he said. “You not only bought a hot dog for that homeless woman, but you also prayed with her. I’ve been on this spot for 15 years. Thousands of people pass my stand every day, but I had never seen that! You never have to pay to eat here again.”
Like that hot dog vendor, God is always watching, and “your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”
2 Corinthians 9:6 ESV – The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Proverbs 3:27 ESV – Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.
Proverbs 19:17 ESV – Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
What would you do.
