During a trip this week to cover the Kentucky-Vanderbilt game in Nashville, I had a very moving experience.
As I was walking back from Memorial Gymnasium to the Holiday Inn-Vanderbilt, I passed a Wendy’s adjacent to a fancy restaurant. In the stairwell enclosed by stone, I noticed a sack that had a bowl of leftover chili, a spoon and a cup. I looked up and there sat a homeless man, who was shaking and shivering.
I walked a few steps and God told me to walk back and give the man $5. I walked two more steps and God whispered in my ear again, but with more authority and demand. I turned around, went back and gave the man $5. He was lifting up his hands and said, “thank you, thank you.” I replied God Bless You and headed back to the hotel. When Bill, Steve and his dad Ken decided to walk to Logan’s and eat a late dinner, we passed that spot where that man sat. I glanced over at Wendy’s and the same gentleman was walking into the entrance with $5 in his hands, instead of waiting for leftover food in the trash. I was in Nashville to cover the Cats, but helped a homeless, man too. I’m blessed and glad God used me to bless a homeless man.
Here’s a video and song that we all should try to do: The Bishops: \”Reach the World\”
