I have a lengthy commute each day to and from work. I traverse both interstates and many city streets. Over the years the number of street corner folks begging for money has increased dramatically. Lord only knows what troubles and tribulations have befallen these poor people.
He adds that most are drug addicts and I am just helping their habit along. He suggests the best way to help them is by not giving them money, hoping they reach rock bottom, and then seek help.
My upbringing however taught me to help people in need. But its just getting harder and harder to differentiate between the real needy and the street corner scammers/addicts. So what do you do? Give and let live, or drive by and say good-bye?
