The most important thing you can do for the homeless community is to pray for them. Make your prayers personal by engaging a homeless person and asking them how you can pray for them. This simple engagement will show them that you care about them on a personal level and will encourage them through the day.
We need to remember that each person is a child of God and does not deserve to be looked down upon. It can be hard to overcome stereotypes and look the other way when it comes to homelessness but we need to share the hope that only Christ can give. Remember that whatever you do to help, you are serving Christ. See Christ in each person and start ministering to the homeless today
15 Minutes of Fame
Some say that everyone will experience at least 15 minutes of fame in their life. Most seem to be always seeking or expecting fame because they think they deserve it, and when and if they receive it, they always think that it is well deserved. But most who seek it or think they deserve it will only experience a manufactured fame that most would not confirm. That's why I think it is interesting when someone, like a homeless person, receives that fame, even for 15 minutes, and is shocked to receive that kind of recognition. Maybe that is the only way to receive fame is by not seeking or expecting it. Certainly most would not think that real fame would be experienced by a homeless person who has an addiction to alcohol and has spent his whole life fighting the urge to drown his sorrows in a bottle, but it can happen.
