Homeless, misguided and on a social sabbatical

There is a large section of our population that is homeless, lost, misguided or simply asking for help. How should we treat these people? Every encounter with a homeless person (or anyone asking for help) is a test, a chance for us to show our true nature. Warner has many such encounters and this is how he sees it.

Enter Warner on the homeless and misguided

I have a natural affinity with, dare I say, the less fortunate than ourselves. Or are they?

I’ve always had it even as a young kid with just pennies in my pocket.

The homeless, the misguided , on a social sabbatical or what ever society likes to label these lovely people.

“Do you have any spare change”

I’m privileged to be asked this, I really am.

It happens to me a lot. I could write a whole book on these experiences.

I look them in the eye – or should I say we both look each other in the eye, we are human after all. These are my brothers, my sisters, no judgment or at least I don’t think they are judging me!

They’re my teacher and I love to give. Give with no expectations, no questions and no thought of reward. Try it. It’s good for the soul.

I have some great friends who will tell me off

“They’re off to buy drink and drugs”

“It’s their job. they’re on loads of money, they have a car around the corner”

Really? Is that really their job? I don’t think so.

I see brothers, sisters, mums and dads. People who have lost their way.

Most of the time I see pure divinity.

We can all afford to give, or at least forgo, the cost of a coffee or cake occasionally and pass that energy/money on.

We are all human. We are all in this together after all aren’t we?

Share our bread.
