A few weeks back the city of Beirut in Lebanon experienced a massive explosion in the heart of the city. The explosion blasted out windows and tore down buildings for blocks. Many are left wounded, 100’s of innocent lives were lost and over 300,000 people are displaced from their homes.
One thing I learned from sitting in traffic is that nothing ever happens. Yup, exactly, hours of ‘nothing ever happens’. Thousands of people staring into their phones, waiting for the lights to change. On this particular day, however, God prepared something very special for me, I met Reggie. You know that awkward moment at the stoplight when a man or woman in need walks by your window asking for some pocket change and you start anxiously pretending to be looking at your phone? That’s how I met Reggie.
