Thereís a beggar standing in front of her house. Please, not today. Donít disturb me. Iím waiting for God to visit me! She rejects the beggar and closes the door.

While after that, someone knocked the door again, this woman straight goes to open the door. But guess whom she met? Just an old poor man asking for help.
