#GoodNews: Sometimes All It Takes Is 30 Cents

Justice Smith and his 5-year-old son were in their car when they saw a homeless man standing in the median strip. Justice said he wanted to give the man some money, but didn’t have any cash. His son Justus Mateo noticed the man as well. Justice wrote the following on Facebook…

Uncoached, he insisted that I give the man the 30 cents he had in his pocket. I was more than happy he wanted to do this….BUT honestly I was hesitant. I didn’t want to give this man who clearly needed all the help he could get, just 30 cents.

I almost told my son, ‘Let’s wait to give until we at least have one dollar.’ I almost told our son by my inaction that what he had wasn’t enough. I almost showed him that what he sees as a good thing, isn’t enough to make a difference in someone’s life.

But then I rolled down my window and said ‘I’m sorry man, I don’t have any cash on me, but my son back here wants to give you everything he has right now. He just turned 5.’

And my God… The smile on that man’s face lit UP the intersection and he said to Justus, ‘God bless you little man! Thank you so much!’

Our little boy, without even realizing it, reminded me once again by his actions that it’s always about the heart. It doesn’t matter how much you have or how little; giving in love and sincerity will often bless others more than we think.”
