One of the most important things that we can control is our words. The most valuable commodity that we have is our time. Do some thinking and put the two of them together, and you can make miracles happen.
We have people in our communities who live tough lives. They sometimes have addiction problems; they come from abusive families; they are poor; they live hard lives.
Some of those folks come into Humanity House. One such gentleman came in to ask for help with gas money. Our funds are extremely low right now, and so we told him that we were sorry, but we didnt have the funds available on that day. He left. But then he came back. He walked in the door and asked a simple question. Do you not have the funds because of who I am?
