A restaurant manager has gone out of his way to help a homeless man who walked into Chick-fil-A in hopes of getting some scrap food to feed himself.
While the story isn’t exactly new, the manager’s generous actions continue to inspire people from around the world.
On his Facebook profile, Joey Karen Mustain, one of the people who witnessed the heartwarming moment at a Chick-fil-A restaurant, wrote:
“I took Stella to Chick-fil-A today. It’s our normal daddy/daughter spot. It’s clean, so good, and the playground has a tractor beam on her the moment she sees it.
“When we finished eating and she’d worked up her dessert appetite playing with the other kids, we went back to trade in her toy for ice cream. She wanted to sit at a table to eat the cone (something we usually do in the truck), and I’m so glad she did.
“We took a booth right next to the spot where you wait for your drink to be ‘refreshed,’ and we had a front row seat to this beautiful scene: a homeless traveler had walked in and asked if they had any extra food.Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes.
His hair was matted, and his beard wasn’t a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn’t get to shave as often as most of us do.People near him kept their distance, but that didn’t stop him from being kind. ”
As the man continued to explain, the homeless man patiently waited for the manager and begged him for food scraps after he appeared.
“I could pick up on of the conversation was the manager saying that he’d love to give him a full, warm meal–not just scraps or extras–, and the only thing he required was that the man let him pray with him,” Joey explained, adding that the manager only asked the homeless man for one thing – to be allowed to pray with him.
“I heard love in that prayer. The homeless man wasn’t some untouchable stain on business. He was the reason that store opened its doors this morning (or any morning),” Joey added.
Inspired by the act of kindness, Joey took this opportunity to teach his daughter a valuable lesson about the importance to be kind and help others.
“I love teaching my daughter life lessons, and I also love being there to watch other Christians teach her life lessons,” he said.
