Seeing Jesus

I was picking up prescriptions and a few other things at the pharmacy a couple of towns over from home. It is not in the best neighborhood, but is fine during the daytime. I try not to go there at night. I tried a different pharmacy a few years back, but the pharmacist and techs were not great, and so I went back to this original one. But I digress…

After buying my groceries, I walked out the sliding doors with child #2. Sitting on the sidewalk, outside the door, was a man. He was asking for spare change. I said “I don’t have any money, but I do have an apple.” He said he would take the apple. He was cold and hungry. People were passing him by and ignoring his pleas. I found the apple that I had brought along for my breakfast and a Luna bar I had in the glove compartment. I, after all, had more food at home. Did he?

He was so grateful. He blessed me and I blessed him. I wished I had had a blanket in the car. He was so cold. How can everyone ignore him? Did they not see Jesus sitting there asking for help? Have you never been cold or hungry? Put a few blankets and granola bars (gluten-free and dairy-free, of course! People who need help sometimes have allergies too!) and look for a chance to bless someone in need. It doesn’t have to be lot, but it does need to be done. Together, we can make the world a better place! Merry Christmas.
