Mugged Man: “You Might As Well take My Coat”

A teenager steals a man’s wallet by knife-point in the subway. The man offers the thief his jacket as well. Next thing you know the victim is taking the mugger out to eat and eventually gets his wallet back. Then he gives the teen $20 and asks for the knife in exchange.

That’s the story of Julio Diaz as told on NPR (link via kottke).

It’d be an incredibly cheesy sermon illustration if it weren’t true. Luke 6:27-38—them’s some hard words.
