I think that question is something we'd all have a hard time truly answering because by the outward appearance of that man, he doesn't look trustworthy.

"Let brotherly love continue. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels." - Hebrews 13:1-2
This passage really inspired me and got me to thinking. What if a homeless person is an angel? God tells us in this passage that someone we meet very well could be. Why not treat everyone we meet with respect and do our best to help them with whatever needed?
The man I spoke about was not a real man - I made all that up. However, there more than likely is someone like him out there.
What do you think?
