Helping People in Need


I've heard a lot of stink about people in my area begging. Most of it is because several of these people have been accused of presenting false information in order to scam people into giving them money when in reality they aren't needy at all. 

Unfortunately this happens. But I don't believe that simply because there are some deceptive people out there that we as Christians are exempt from helping people in need. 

Plenty of scriptures remind us to give to and care for people in need. But I believe the most gut wrenching one is this...

Matthew 25:35-40 “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,  I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’  Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?  And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’  And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”


I would hate to think that I walked past Jesus in need. I would hate to think that I had a small opportunity in which I could give something I can easily live without to reflect the love of Christ.

With that said... check out this video for ways besides giving money that you can give to people who are asking for assistance. 



Would love to hear your comments! Thanks for reading/watching! 



What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
