Unfortunately, more often than not, poor homeless people are seen as crooks and thieves. This is because most of them do whatever they can do to get by, and understandably so. Life on the streets can't be easy.
However, because of the stigma around homeless people, many of them are not easily trusted. Which is probably why people who first saw the video posted by BI Phakathi on Facebook did not expect the poor man in the video to return with the cash or the Coke.
By bringing back the Coke and ten cents change, the homeless man proved to be an honest person and was rewarded generously for that reason. BI decided to give the guy both food and money.
Watch the exchange below.
Facebook users were impressed by both the homeless man's honesty and BI's gesture. Many of them appreciated the wise lesson behind the whole thing.
@Ma Ka Thandiecm said,
"Even God tests His people with the little things to prepare us for bigger ones. I have learnt that not all of these guys are in the streets because they want to be. Bless you both."
While @Faith Bazooka Lesedi had this to say:
"The positive energy/thought you have easily gets transmitted to others. So these people you help can't easily disappoint you. Big ups again BI!"
