According to CNN, Michael Rivers, who has been in the force for nine years, knows nearly all the homeless people in his community.

However, while he was driving in the streets, he spotted an unfamiliar face and decided to engage her in a conversation.

The lady was wearing a shirt that read “Homeless. The fastest way to become a nobody,” and that made Michael’s heart sink immediately.

The 29-year-old police officer said God talked to him and asked him to buy the woman lunch because she was starving.

“God put it on my heart to get her lunch. So, I turned around and I asked her, 'Hey, did you eat today?’ ” He narrated.

Immediately, the kind police officer ran to a nearby fast food shop and got a pepperoni and cheese pizza then sat with the lady before digging in.
