I have been engaged for a couple of years now in ministering to the homeless. In doing so I have learnt a powerful personal lesson which I believe is Necessary for all to learn if they want to be successful to engage in life with all people, no matter their social standing.
No one lives and operates within a vacuum. After sitting with many homeless, hearing their stories – I’m learning that to successfully engage with anyone; its important to hear / know the others story. For in doing so – only then will we truly know how to respond to what they are saying, engage in real life and in doing so: perhaps the result will be that we become more empowered or be we will be able to empower others for the better…or as the Apostle Paul said…mutually encourage one another.
