WFW: Thoughts To Ponder

31 Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.
When was the last time that you extended your arms for our less-fortunate brothers? Or how do you reacted when a street child approaches you begging for alms? I do not know your answer to these questions but one thing is for sure. God sees everything that we do to our unfortunate brethren. We cannot deny the fact that in some point of our lives, in a given situation, we tend to discriminate the people that we met everyday.We either look down or look up to the person. Sad, but it's true. Even myself sometimes, I simply ignore those street kids who tries to beg for food. Sometimes also I gave but most of the time I refuses. I rationalize the situation thinking that if I kept on giving them, they will become too dependent and will no longer find ways to earn a living... But how can people like them be get employed nowadays? That's one thing that I failed to consider. We cannot just simply blame them for being so dependent with other people because they are left with no choice.
Next time you meet beggars on the street consider this: Do not count what you have given, but rather, think of the countless blessings that you have received and be happy to share them with those incapable of having such.

Happy Word Filled Wednesday
