Before V, I had never picked up a hitchhiker. I've done it fairly often since meeting V. Just the other day, we had a delicious breakfast and wasn't sure what we were going to do with the rest of our day. We started driving north. We saw a guy walking with a suitcase, that we had seen when we first pulled up to eat breakfast. We drove past him and then turned around to pick him up. He was heading to Jacksonville, V decide to drive up about half way - to St. Augustine.
Apparently this guy had a fight with his girlfriend - it got physical - she beat him up pretty good. He showed us his "battle wounds."
After we left this gentleman, we were talking about picking up hitchhikers. (Btw- he always asks me if he should do it and if it's okay with me before he does it.) He said that he wants to just lend a helping hand, as he always does.
God is our protector - so we have faith that He will protect us when we do something as this. Even if Satan comes in and something bad would happen - at least it would be because we were doing something good...hopefully changing someone's life just a little bit.
This was the conclusion of that conversation V and I had.
Just the other day, I was telling a friend about how V and I do this from time to time. He freaked out. As a man, V should do everything to protect me and not put me in potentially bad situations.
Where do you stand?
