Without a doubt, my most frequently asked question involves panhandling. What should I do? How should I do it? Are they going to use the money for something bad?

I submit that most of our questions along this line are not really about panhandlers, but about our need to hold onto our money and our service to the false gods of convenience and control.


I unpack that a bit over on my friend Karen’s blog, where she asked me this question:

I recently pulled out of a parking lot and there was a line of panhandlers at the stop light. How do I help? Who do I help?

Go see what my answer was.
