THE GENEROUS MAN

THE GENEROUS MAN

He fought for good causes so the stories say 
People, he thought, should not sleep under a doorway 
They should have food to eat and somewhere to sleep 
A promise to himself he would endeavour to keep 

This generous man set up a shelter for the homeless and poor 
Queues of the less fortunate walked through that door 
This generous man did not receive any encouragement or praise 
Something I could never understand for the rest of my days

Jesus taught to do things without recognition, because that assures the acts of kindness are just that....and not for personal gain.....showing God's love....and that man had a true heart of love and concern for humanity......a great soul that I wish more would follow in actions.  Great write.  xo

 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

~Ephesians 2:8-10

Just a verse that came to mind after reading this, KIERAN.
Nicely done...
