    Yeah, maybe that wasn't set up. Kum by yah and all that. I just have a hardened heart cause I have been used and abused sooooo many times. I personally have heard so many sob stories it would make your head spin. I wish my heart had not been hardened!!

    Scott, I asked my Dad about that, many years ago.
    He said he gave with good intent, how they received it was on them.

    I, don't give cash, but I will buy a meal.

    I owned a business and sometimes would hire down on their luck men. I have NEVER got anywhere near my moneys worth. I would pay them the same as I did everyone. BUT! Shame on them toooo many times. STUPID ME tooo many times.

    You are a good man Mascot, and you'll be Judged in Heaven on your good deeds. Although they may not have held their end up so good you certainly did, good on you.

  9. I saw a guy at a red light every day, when i pulled up to him and handed him my lunch
    you could tell he was pissed off , either wanted steak or money.
    The next day, we had just left Mikey D, drive thru, I ate my breakfast
    put all the trash in the bag,
    handed it to him as the light changed

    I always look at the shoes and the haircut. We give to charities, so I mostly direct them to those places but will occasionally buy or give cash when led to do so.

    Well guys I am on the Board of Feed My Sheep in Gulfport. We are the only soup kitchen in town. We serve right at 800 meals a day five days a week. All of our funds are raised with no government support. We really don't want it as then they want to tell you what to do.
    all that to say and agree that my heart is very hard usually. BUT!! When you see a man or woman or both come in hungry and all but kiss your feet because you are giving them a meal it touches that hard heart. I guarantee it softens, You usually can spot the difference right off. And yes we have them come up in a Lexus and draped with a ton of bling and walk through the line. I want to---well you know what I was saying! However we have a don't ask policy. They will stand before our Lord one day so he can ask them.
    So my stance is use your heart and go with what it tells you. The Lord knows and sees all.
