“Can you spare a dime.”
Why the man stopped to reply, only God knows.
“I’ve worked hard for what I have.”
The reply was filled with wisdom.
“So you think begging is easy. The only time you deal with shame is when you leave $500 on the table after the deal. Everybody works hard for what they have.”
The man didn’t reach into his pocket. He made no reply to the bum. He turned and walked away. But the words haunt him to this day.
Born into life.
Born into strife.
The blessing of riches,
Or none at all.
Do we really have a choice?
