People like to beg at churches, they feel that since a person goes to church they are obligated to give at every turn.

My question to all, when is enough, enough? I mean a person, a group and even a country can't give to everyone.

Pan handlers remind me of libs, many believe it's better for someone else to pay for thei lives than to go to work.

I have seen plenty of these folks asking for handouts right across the street from a place with a help wanted sign.

I had a guy approach me a few years ago in a grocery store parking lot, he needed a few bucks for gas to get back to DC. I gave him a dollar or two... five minutes later i ran into the same guy at the liquor store (he had two of those miller tall cans of beer) that ruined it for everybody after that..i feel that i cannot trust that person begging.

 

I heard that the really good beggars make a better living doing that then they would at a 9-5 job, and some drive BMW's or other nice cars....

No good deed goes unpunished.

 

I have heard those same stories too Paint. Not sure if they are urban legends or what, but one thing is certain about most of those people: They are not trying to support families, they are trying to support their own bad habits.

We have several friends that make it a practice to carry around some McDonalds gift certificates, bottles of water, a few snacky things, etc. and then hand those out to anyone who approaches for money for food.  I've never done that, but might try it since giving cash is probably going to be wasted on booze or drugs.  Hard to ignore someone in need, but also hard to trust their stories about why they're in need.
