A Funny Way of Saying It

Those of us who enjoy the temporal wealth of homes and money frequently remain disconnected to our own “poverty.” Thus, we find it difficult to connect with others who are actually living in physical poverty. For instance, many view the homeless, the addict and the poor as the real losers in life. However, with a little honesty and soul searching, we begin to connect with our own personal brokenness, our own sins – like this guy …

A well to do gentleman is walking along the street in a big city. A homeless man calls to him "Excuse me Mister, can I have $5?" "Will you buy booze with it?" asks the gentleman "No." Says the homeless guy. "Will you gamble it away?" asks the gentleman. "No." "Will you come home with me so my wife can see what happens to a man who doesn't drink or gamble?"
