The Panhandler


The panhandler is a person who accosts passers-by on the street, riders on the subway, motorists stopped at red lights, etc., and begs from them. The average person tries to avoid panhandlers regardless of who or where they may be.


Let’s change the wording in the above definition a little. What if the panhandler was a person who accosts (approach or confronts boldly) passers-by on the street, riders on the subway, motorists stopped at red lights, etc., and offer them the greatest gift of all times.

In many ways, disciples of Jesus are panhandlers who offer something everywhere he or she goes instead of begging.

Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:10-12


This is what we offer on the corner for free.
