It’s wonderful to be kind, in fact it is your duty in life.
I was told a story by one of my many African friends. She told me of a millionaire in Maui Africa who dressed as a homeless person one day and went about asking for help. He asked one woman if she would be so kind to buy him a meal. The lady looked at his attire and turned her nose up and walked off. He asked another and another but the same thing happened. He was under the impression that people are mean and don’t want to help. The under cover millionaire decided he would take one more shot at it before retiring home. He came across a lady who appeared to not have as much as the others he’d asked prior but figured it was worth a shot. He thought what’s there to lose.
“Excuse me, but I’m really hungry and would love a nice hot meal.” The woman looked him up and down but agreed with much cheer to buy him a nice hot meal. “Sure, I was just about to order me something. We can sit and eat together if you don’t mind?” The man didn’t mind at all. In fact he was very flattered. They ordered the food and had small talk while they ate. Once the meal was over he asked the lady for her information. She was apprehensive but assured the man she would see him again. He was looking forward to it.
The next day the man showed up to the same spot dressed as the millionaire he is and saw the kind lady. He approached her and asked if there was anything she needed. She was such a social butterfly and began to tell him about what she could do if she had a certain amount of money. He laughed because she went on and on. He finally wrote a check for more than what she said she could use. She was puzzled and figured the check to be a fake. The millionaire laughed and asked if she remembered him. She looked deeply into his eyes and assured him she never met him before. He finally revealed he was the homeless guy she was kind too on yesterday and how he had millions on a quest to help him whoever helped him.
She cried and thanked God for answering her prayers. As it turned out she couldn’t afford to feed anybody and that was ALL she had left, but God supplied her need as she meet the need of someone else.
If you can meet the need please do it. You never know who you are helping. All who appear to be a certain way may very well be your breakthrough blessing. You have NOTHING to lose but EVERYTHING to gain!!
