Searching For The Truth

 

Homelessness "The Least Of These"

 

  I would like to say that every one of our children here in America has a place to call home. But sadly this is not the case. As our economy has slipped downwards, so has our sense of morals in "Helping the least of These". We do not have to go far to see what has become of the many families hit heavily by the downward spiral. 

We do know however, what the right thing to do is. What we lack is the knowledge and guidance to act. Of course not everyone wishes to do the right thing. Yet I believe more people would do something if they took the time to educate themselves.

Somehow we just think that it is not our problem. There are many myths and untruths that we believe about homelessness here in America. Please go to our Homeless page to find out the truth. 

People who have been forced out of work, devoured by hungry greed in our country, or simply out paced by our fast paced lifestyle, have all come to the realization that prosperity is just not in the cards for them.

Than I recalled the saying "The least of these" 

Who are the least of these? Jesus said that if you have done it to the least of these you have done it onto me.

"For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.

In Matthew Chapter 25:35,36 Jesus explains who the least of these are. I would like to take special note of  "I was a stranger and you invited me into your home." Now he did not say I was a stranger and you sent me to the shelter, or I was a stranger and you supplied me with a tent. No He spoke more personal than that. He simply said "you invited me into your home."

I have had experiences where I  opened my home up to strangers. I have to admit that sometimes it was trying. Yet I would do it again just the same. Our society, in my opinion, are fearful of strangers. I suppose that the fear is warranted to some degree but I also understand that ignorance and selfishness plays a huge part also. Many of us live in homes with vacant bedrooms or even whole sections of living space unoccupied. We could put a dent in homelessness if we invited them into our home. I invite you to educate yourself to the world of the homeless and see if they remain strangers.
