Good and Bad Habits

Traditional homeless shelters are so heavily concerned with stopping homeless people’s bad habits that there is little or no room in the shelter for a person to work on creating good habits. Especially with faith based shelters, where they spend so much time and effort trying to convince the homeless that they are bad people, they give no opportunity for the homeless to show their good side.
It’s time for a change.  Instead of obsessing over the mistakes that people make, shelters should give ample opportunity for the homeless to let that side of them, where the face of jesus can be seen, to shine through.
