You will gain more by receiving scorn peacefully than if you fasted for a week on bread and water.
It is good to humble ourselves; but it is much more worthwhile to accept the humiliations that come to us from others.

'If I were to meet the slave-traders who kidnapped me and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands, for if that did not happen, I would not be a Christian and Religious today… The Lord has loved me so much: we must love everyone… we must be compassionate!"

The glory of Jesus...that is my whole ambition; my own I abandon to Him; and if He seem to forget me, well, He is at liberty to do so since I am mine no more, but His. He will more quickly tire of making me wait, than I, of waiting!

 "Compassion, my dear Brother, is preferable to cleanliness.
 Reflect that with a little soap I can easily clean my bed covers,
 but even with a torrent of tears I would never wash from my soul the stain that my harshness toward the unfortunate would create."

Great quote!

Really says something to those of us (myself included  Sad ) who have crossed to the other side of the street to avoid a rough-looking homeless person.

Same with me!  Some of them are abusive. I remember a homeless man in my home town in Lira, Uganda, whom women dreaded meeting along the way because he would follow anyone he zeroed in on, especially if it was a woman; He would then stick like a leech, making fun and drawing the attention of passers by. He was often  abusive also.

Sometimes one should avoid them! It's a matter of safety!

That would be different than other unworthy reasons.

I didn't think of that.  Smiley  I guess the types of homeless people that a man in Canada encounters are very different then the types that a lady in Uganda will encounter...

We can cure physical diseases with medicine but the only cure for lonliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more who are dying for a little love. Let us not be satified with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So spread love everywhere you go.
Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
