Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man is homeless
Posted By: Joel Savage on August 26, 2015 |
In the Bible, Jesus spoke in parables, using stories and illustrations to speak to his followers. He once said “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” His teachings and parables may be rejected by non-believers or atheists, yet his teachings reflect on our lives today.
Do you know that in 2005, a global survey by the United Nations, estimated over 100 million people were homeless worldwide and as many as 1 billion people lacked adequate housing? In Europe alone, there are 3 million homeless people, while Columbia registers 9.5 million and 24.4 million in Nigeria.
There are certain factors contributing to homelessness. Physical disabilities, depression, mental illness, drug ****, broken homes, domestic problems and lack of employment, are some of the causes leading to homelessness. At times one may be free from the mentioned problems, but certain factors can push someone to live on the street.
