1. Get a $10 bill (or 2), and put it in your wallet or purse.
2. Pray for an opportunity.
3. Give the $10 bill away . . . to someone begging on the side of the road, to cover lunch for the person sitting alone at the table next to yours, to pay for something the person behind you is buying, to the single mom in your kid’s class who’s struggling to make ends meet.
4. Write about your experience. If you have a blog, please post your thoughts and leave a link in the comments here.
Well…this past week, I was in Denver, CO for work. I was out with my sales reps meeting with clients and I saw someone on the side of the road holding a sign. I passed on my $10.00 to him.
Now, I know we’ve all seen them. Holding cardboard signs asking for either jobs, money or both. How many times have you passed them by? I’ve done it countless times throughout my life. My reactions to seeing them have ranged from, “Ahhh, you’ll just spend it on booze.” to “I’m so blessed, God would want me to give back to those who are less fortunate.”
What are your thoughts?
