Would you recommend Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless?

by Robert P. (October 24, 2012)
I listen to people all the time complaining about thier state of affairs, yet these same people have jobs, a roof over their heads, a car in the garage and in most cases are financially secure. They need to count their blessing, yet they can't see beyound their selfishness. They or we need to put things in there proper prepective. How offen do we think about the othe person, the married men or women who just a month ago had the home the car, the job, but was layed off off because his job was ship to China, India or Mexico. It has to be the most humilating feeling in the world for a men and women to raligate themselve, their kids to living in a car or on the street begging for handout to survive from day to day. How would it feel to train someone half you age willing to work for a faction of your pay to take your job. You lose your dignity, your self respect and in some cases your will to live. I am sadden by our state of affairs and I just want to give back whenever I can
