That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” – Ephesians 4:22-24 Truth is street ministry isn’t for everybody. Speaking with young girls that are vulnerable is dangerous. It’s Jesus, “the least of these,” true enough. But sometimes you have to walk away. A good run is better than a bad stand. I know it happens. I had to run some years ago. I was on the corner. A young girl strung out and hungry asked me for a light. I was speechless. I couldn’t think or talk. I said, ” gotta run.” And I did. Most carnal desires are good and healthy. But desires ought not to rule a man or drive him to destruction.
