Great Christmas Vid: The Random Altruist

This is just wonderful. This man walks up to homeless and asks them what they want for Christmas. Then delivers.

I think it's the simple little things they wanted and clearly mean so much to them that moved me. Check it out.

  1. God bless that person. As I watched, I found myself wondering whether these homeless people were homeless because of conditions over which they had no control (obviously, some were), or because of poor choices (again, obviously some were). Shame on me and God bless this giver. I often preach that it's not up to us to decide who is genuinely in need of material help and who isn't -- that we're called to give and God will sort out at the end who received in truth and who took advantage of the givers. Obviously, I need to work on that boulder in my eye some more. Thank you for posting this.

  2. Jesus says, "Give to everyone who asks of you." (Luke 6:30)

    When someone begs you for money, ask them what they would like it for and offer to go and buy it for them. If that is truly what they need or want, they will gratefully receive it.
