Worth reading. Worth doing.

So the next time a bum tries to cadge a buck out of you, at least have the courtesy to pull the earbuds out and engage him as a fellow human being. Don’t give him any money if you don’t want to. But acknowledge him. He’s not a blot on your aesthetic little world. If he is, well, your problems are bigger than his.

  • thanks for the link to the article. It is an impotant thing to consider, that is, treating the other with dignity and respect as they are human. Society does such a great job teaching us to comodify life and devalue the other. as christians, our very presence and the way we live should be a prophetic challenge to the system that encourages these dehumanizing ways.
