Count It All Joy!

Showing God's LoveYou've seen them... the people holding signs up needing money, food, and help of some sort.  I pass them all the time on the freeway entrance and exits.  They are in front of stores -- often with children, but so many are scams.  How do we know who really needs help and what we should do?

It bothered me that I passed by them and did nothing.   I began praying for them that if they were truly in need that God would provide (and I also pray for their salvation).  It's not that I don't want to help ...
