I know a man. Check that, I know many men.
I know a great man. Which is a harder thing for people to say.
He is not perfect, but he’s Irish, so he’s close.
He isn’t rich and powerful, in a Donald Trump kind of way.
He is Rich and Powerful, in a Kingdom of God sort of way.
This man and I spoke yesterday morning a few times. I am not sure if he likes me very much. I can get bogged down in politics and crap at times. He wants to help people.
When we talked he was happy/angry/focused and a blessing. He was asking about a local fundraiser, and seemed unimpressed that a charity and a radio station had been piggy backed together at the event. That something local, and something out of town were being pushed together.
“I could walk from here to the corner and find someone who is hungry, why would I give my money to a stupid radio station” Bing bing bing…
I have no problem with Christian Radio, in theory. I have a huge problem with people going hungry. So does this man. But as a test, I decided to put his theory on the sidewalk and see.
For those who are click adverse… 0.3 kilometers. 300 meters. I found the following;
1 individual suffering from dementia
3 mentally challenged adults (2 not dressed for the cool breeze ripping down Hastings St. at the time)
2 people who had not had any food that day (I asked them, knowing who they are and their situation)
4 people who need to read this which is just as lethal as any thing i mention.
3 kids who are no longer allowed at school, but who are still enrolled!
And those are just the stories I know!
So this man, is not just right, he is DAMN right.
So what did he do? I don’t know!
But in your town, there is at least one man like him… and you need to find that man, thank him for all he does, and buy him a coffee… if he will let you, he might be too busy buying someone lunch!
