What do you think about hitchhikers? If you see them on the side of the road, do you help or just keep going? Or does it depend on their presence?
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?
