As I venture into the world to minister to prisoners and homeless men, I am frequently ministering to men who are not all that lovable. They have their own beliefs and opinions. I dispense the alms … they receive the alms … why can they not see the world as I see it? Alas, I learn every day that God has not arranged the world for my personal tranquility. From time to time … more now than before … I see a little of these men in myself … and a little of me in them … and a healthy dose of God in us all.
