As some fellow church members have been really getting involved in local homeless ministries, I have really been considering this huge need. I have been so convicted about how critical I can be when I see a homeless person. I dare to think, "Is he really homeless? Is he just faking it?" or worse, I may see someone and be really burdened and not do anything. So often, I do not even pray.
There are over 10,000 homeless people in Louisville each year. You can read about it here. I hope to share some more things we are learning about ways to get involved. For now, I long for grace to start opening my eyes and heart to see and love them.
The Gospel is for so many more people than just middle-class "safe and white" Americans.
