If you see someone on the side of the road begging for money, or food, do you help them?


It seems with the economy being were it is today, that I have been seeing more and more people with signs begging for money and food. However, times are tight. Do you have the ability to spare some extra cash or food? And do you trust that giving them this will be helpful or that they will just abuse your help?

    You have told the truth. There are jobs out there; however, these jobs may not be what the person wants but it is a JOB nevertheless.

    I absolutely agree with you. I too give when and what I can and I attach no strings to my small donations. It is not up to me to decide what someone else 'needs' to make it through their day.

    There is times I have seen the same thing. I also know that there is a Higher Power that sees that as well but I still will give because Jesus knows the real truth in their hearts as well as mine.
