Serving among Thieves

We keep a watchful eye on backpacks and wallets.
This is a culture of unemployment, beggars, and thieves.
There is not a lot of difference in the streets of America.
The Bible is very clear that thieves will not inherit
the kingdom of heaven, so we walk upon hot stones here.
The very fires of hell crack below us and about us.
We must be willing to lose some things to gain souls!
Where are the well fed and well trained Americans
who will make faith work among the thieves?
All around us are people who are clamoring for a handout.
They want what we cannot give and miss what we offer
in the grace of God that can make thieves into princes!
