“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40 NIV)
We got an eye opening experience today when we were taken to a women’s and men’s beggars colony. It’s not a line of homeless people or where people go to beg even. In India they take adults with mental illnesses and put them into small barracks. There were hundreds of men in a building no bigger than a small church sanctuary.
These men and women were very sweet and kind, but we were just shocked to see so many people living in these small government subsidized homes. It really put biblical reading about beggars into perspective and widen our world view about things that go on today and how the bible is always relevant.
