  • Michigan Woman Lives on Roof of Grocery Store

    The woman lives inside a grocery store sign. She had been living there for a year but was just chased out by local police.

    This story is about the tough time poor people, especially the elderly, are having. I've read several million old people who have no money except their social security will retire in the next few years. These people will be living in their cars or under bridges. Mayors like me who care about people and follow all this carefully.

    I have two positions on these unfortunate old people. First, they themselves need to find a place to live. Second, we do not want them in Freehold. Anyone found sleeping in his or her car will be sent packing. I hope this is inspirational to old people and will give them the encouragement they need to find some money and get off the streets.

    I'm grateful for your pro-active approach to homelessness, and I'm sure others are. And who knows? Your message could well save certain people from taking up this unsustainable lifestyle.

    There will be few who read the story and not think of
    Proverb:21:9: It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house.
    and
    Proverb:25:24: It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.​

    God must have thought it important as he puts it in twice.

    I am wondering how this affects women. I cannot see that a man can be "brawling" - he merely asserts his authority over women. Perhaps there is a husband in the background who has expelled his wife and commanded her to live on the roof - I must say this seems preferable to living on the roof oneself.

      Good observation, Pastor Bathfield. There are homeless people, including women, living near Freehold. With Freehold off limits they must compete for space under the trees along the Raccoon River. Perhaps this competition for tent space will bring the homeless to Jesus and spur their efforts to earn money.

        And people need to understand that getting right with Jesus is the first step to earning (or obtaining) decent money. If someone is broke and claiming to have God in their lives, then they are clearly not Jesus-ing right. Christians are specifically promised abundance if they obey The Lord and His commands. Scarcity and want are signs that Jesus is not happy with a person's efforts.

        His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.

          So true, Sister Handmaiden. Jesus waits for those with no money ready to help. There are endless stories out there of people who came to Jesus, gave a TV evangelist their last $5 and received a job offer the next day. Receive Jesus and tithe and you are on you way up.
