As I was walking through a parking lot on a recent trip, my attention was drawn to a gentleman who was walking nearby. He might have been a millionaire, but if so he certainly hid it well. I saw outward signs of poverty. Unclean. His countenance was cast down. No spark in his step and no sparkle in his eye.
For whatever reason, I felt a prompting to give him some money. He had not approached me. He did not ask for it, but I walked over to the man and said, “Let me bless you today”, handed him the money, and turned away.
His surprise was obvious.
I have no idea what he did with the money, but I believe he probably needed that money way more than me.
