In a recent post I wrote about James, the homeless man I interact with almost every day, and how he gave me a Christian-themed booklet:

Well, when I told him I wasn’t aligned with its content, he asked for it back so he could give it to someone else. I returned it to him today, thanking him graciously for thinking of me. James shrugged and said it’s kind of like when Bill Gates gave all these people he knew a chance to get in on Microsoft at the beginning — the ones who chose not to are really regretting it now.

Wow. I think my eyebrows raised a bit and then I just smiled. This man really believes he invited me to partake in the Promised Land and that someday I’d regret passing it up.
