I hurriedly ordered a hot dog and took it back to her. As I handed it to her, I told her that Jesus loved her and offered to pray for her. She accepted, and we bowed our heads and prayed right there on the street.
Several days later I stopped for a hot dog at the same stand, but the vendor wouldn’t let me pay. “I saw what you did the other day,” he said. “You not only bought a hot dog for that homeless woman, but you also prayed with her. I’ve been on this spot for 15 years. Thousands of people pass my stand every day, but I had never seen that! You never have to pay to eat here again.”
Like that hot dog vendor, God is always watching, and “your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”1
