Another Sad Article About A Homeless Man

As I read this article about a New Jersey homeless man who was paid $5.00 to pour coffee over his head twice by an unidentified individual, I thought to myself, "what kind of a society are we turning into, when we read about these incidents illustrating man's inhumanity to man?"

Then I thought about what our Lord said in Matthew 24:12 (NLT) regarding the society of His day: "Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold."

Beloved, has our society lost all sense of propriety in the treatment of their fellow man? Is our society similar to the society of the first century?

You be the judge, remembering that one day, we will all appear before the "judgment seat of Christ" to answer for what we have done in the flesh (Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10), including any inhumane acts.
