When A Prank Becomes A Lesson in Brotherly Love...

Click to Enlarge
With Christmas upon us, and we are rushing about for those last minute gifts, how many have given thought to those who "have not"?.

When you walk down the street do you really look at those who are truly homeless, or do you avert your eyes? If you decide to give a few coins, do you quickly toss them and move on? Do you avoid giving because "you know" it will not be used wisely?

One youtuber, who is better known for posting pranks, thought he was filming just that. When he decided to give money to a homeless man, he was pretty sure of the outcome. For the sake of his "video" they followed the man and filmed him secretly to see what would happen. The young "prankster" was taught a beautiful lesson of brotherly love and humility by this homeless man who started out being the victim of a prank.

Do watch to the end, and next time you see a homeless person, take a moment to look at them as a brother, a fellow human. Granted, they do need money, but all people have a need to be seen as "people". Please remember that they have feelings, hopes and dreams like the rest of us. Take a moment to let someone know that you "see" them. A kind word or a cup of coffee may not be much to you, but it can make a real difference to someone in need.

This is the real "Spirit of Christmas"
