This Chick-fil-A manager did exactly what Jesus would do

My family and I spend a lot of time ministering to, praying with, and loving on the homeless and materialisticly poor in our community so stories like this warm my heart.

“Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.”

– Proverbs 14:31

This is just one of the reasons I love Chick-fil-A.

During a daddy-daughter date Joey Mustain and his little girl, Stella, spotted a homeless man come in and ask if Chick-fil-A could give him any leftovers.

The Tennessee dad and daughter watched as the grungy man received sideways glances and cold shoulders while waiting for the manager. “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,” Mustain writes on hisFacebook page.

The manager did not seem to notice though. Instead he told the homeless man he would gladly give him a hot meal in exchange for an opportunity to pray with him. Mustain called the scene beautiful.

After the homeless man agreed, there was no waiting for things to die down, there was no scooting anyone to the side. As busy as they were, the manager stopped then and there, laid his hand on the man, and proceeded to pray. 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).

  1. This almost brought tears to my eyes. We need more people who are bold like this manager. My brother has an eye doctor who prayed for his health after examining him, and it’s things like these that give us hope in the power of God’s love!

    Remember all those protests against Chick-fil-A? Remember how they called the management a bunch of haters, etc.? You know how all those same critics scream through clinched teeth, “Why don’t you Christians quit judging people and feed the hungry, or something…you know, like your Jesus would do?”

    Observe….
