The Atheist, The Beggar, and Why God Broke Your Left Foot
Many mistakenly believe that it is important to believe in God. But an atheist has proclaimed to the world that it is more important to "do", than to believe. Action becomes a deafening shout above the ecclesiastical din of the "saved" and the self-righteous.
A beggar fell down before a Christian, and the Christian said, " I am sorry for your loss"; proceeding then to pray for the soul of the beggar, the Christian continued on his way; leaving the beggar standing broken, penniless, and hungry in the street. But when the atheist came upon the beggar, she did not hesitate, offer useless words of condolence, or even pray for the poor beggar's soul. The atheist simply said,"I see your misfortune. Here is $500.00. It is all that I have to give, and so I hope that it serves you well". But from the perspective of the beggar, the atheist had done no less than provide for him an escape route to the future, and the key to his salvation; as he had contemplated suicide, even that very day. Make no mistake:
For every kindness there is a reward,
For every indifference a rainy day
For every evil, a harvest of flies
The atheist had not only shewn mercy upon a beggar, but to one of the favored sons of God! And so, God returned an even greater kindness. Knowing that the atheist would soon take a journey that would lead to her untimely death, God suffered for her to fall down a flight of stairs and break her foot. Thus, the woman was unable to travel, and she is still living today.
The moral of the story should be clear, but I will spell it out for conservative Christian Republicans:
"If you should encounter a beggar on your way to the market, do not hesitate to give him, or her, as much money as you can afford. If money is not the life-blood of the world , then through what other means could a Republican go to the market and then return home? And how many vendors at the marketplace routinely give their merchandise away for free?"
If God has placed a beggar in your path, then give to the beggar all that you can afford. After God pushes you down a flight of stairs, you can count your blessings while your broken foot is on the mend.
