Most times when we walk into big malls,� boutiques���� and supermarkets� we never question their prices.� We pay exactly what we see on the price tags and even hand out tips to the staff.� But the moment we are out of these shops�♀️�♂️ and want to buy bananas� and or peanuts� from a street vendor, our bargaining power rises to the roof.�A poor woman� with hungry children��� at home tells you banana is #100 � She even takes her time to explain how difficult� it was for her to buy it from the market. But we insist that if it's not #50, we are not buying.�some of us even step back into our cars and drive away.� But because "half a bread is better than none", the woman is forced to run��♀️ after you and sell at no gain.�. In her heart she cries,� she's worried about how she'll survive with her children.��� She silently reassures herself that "It's well" since she is not returning home with the bananas.� Her motivation is God will definitely provide some other day.�meanwhile you drive off and happily,� chew the luscious � banana.�� Take some seconds to think about this.am always moved to tears�� when I see people who genuinely and helplessly hawk petty goods to feed and survive for that day, especially women and children.please� don't bargain too hard with small vendors.� They do business not to buy designer bags,� trendy phones,� watches,⌚ shoes�� or designer clothes,� but to FEED the family and CARE for their children��� in school.�This touched me� when I realised it... so lets CHANGE our ways.�� It's another way of spending on humanity in the will of God. "He who gives to the poor lends to his Maker"
