Jesus told us to “give to those who ask.” Many of us solve this problem by avoiding those who might ask something of us. We see a homeless person and we look the other way, making sure we don’t make eye contact. Today, make yourself available to those who might ask. Go to someone who might need help and ask if they need it. Somewhere along the way you might find Christ or at least a new friend.
