WWYD - Homeless Scenario

One of the most important ways anyone can connect is based on their own personal experience. This phrase captures the essence of compassion: "If you have never been there, you don't know what it's like." ABCNews put together a small cast of actors, one a Good Samaritan, one a homeless man, one a bartender, and many acting as 'customers' in a high heeled bar breakfast joint, and to film some common reactions by customers and people, when a homeless man walks into the bar asking for a sandwich with $20 given by a good samaritan. What then would you do? This video is nearly 9 minutes long but is well worth a watch. The last scene is a moving scene. Don't miss it.

It is a well-made video of how the homeless are treated, and the condescending attitudes so prevalent in society, especially toward the homeless.


Jesus has said:
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,f you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:31-40, ESV)
