God knows the heart…

I asked him, “What do you say to people when they say don’t give to a homeless person because they may use your money for drugs or alcohol?” He said, “Sir, I tell them that they need to leave it in the Lord’s hands what they do with your money. If they do something bad with it, it’s not for you to judge, but for God to judge them. But by you giving and taking that chance, God looks at the person’s heart who gave it and that is what is most important

    I agree. When I give to homeless and people question my judgment (which they tend to) I always say, “It’s not my responsibility how he or she spends his or her money.”

    The fact is, it’s not my money anymore. I gave it away. If I gave it to someone who will use it unwisely, well, it’s not really my problem. God said to give to those less fortunate, not to weigh and measure who is worthy of receiving a gift.
