Why Not Be A Beggar?

Today's Maurin

People who are in need and are not afraid to beg give to people not in need the occasion to do good for goodness’ sake.

Modern society calls the beggar bum and panhandler and gives him the bum’s rush.

The Greeks used to say that people in need are the ambassadors of the gods.

We read in the Gospel: “As long as you did it to one of the least of My brothers you did it to Me.”

While modern society calls the beggars bums and panhandlers, they are in fact the Ambassadors of God.

To be God’s Ambassador is something to be proud of.
