I’ve been riding the rail system this week, and I must say my experiences have been interesting. Yesterday I told you about a young lady who was semi homeless who told me about her dream of becoming an elementary school teacher. Well…This morning l met a young man who told me about his job search. As I entered the train station I made my way down to the platform where I saw a young man. He was dressed in Khaki’s and a long sleeve T- shirt He approached me asking if I could direct him to the nearest unemployment office. I told him I didn’t know where the nearest location was for that community. He was shivering, so I asked him if he had a coat. He replied, no. He continued to ask if I knew how the system works. I responded by saying, I think once they get you into the database it’s a thirty day process, that’s along time to wait when you need your money. He shook his head. I then asked him again, where is your coat.? He shook his head and said I don’t know. He was shaking as if his blood had already turned to ice. I asked him how are you going to stay warm? He said, I’m just gonna ride the train untill the unemployment office opens. The train approached and we both went our separate ways entering the train through different doors. When I sat down, God tugged my heart and it came to my attention that I had an underlining fleece jacket under my top coat. I turned around to see if the young man was on the same train cart; he was. I then took off my top jacket, pulled of the underlining fleece, walked down the train corridor, and gave him the underlining fleece. (His eyes fill with gratitude) he said, Thank you. I wish I could have done more, like perhaps bought him a hot meal. The young man did not once ask for a dime, and this was the one time I wished I had carried cash. Many times we look for huge opportunities where we can serve, however, servitude also comes in small packages. I didn’t get to tell him about the loving God that I serve, but hopefully my actions sent a strong message. To God Be The Glory…..
