Stories of Kindness from Around the World

God Uses Us To Change Others


--by foodbankcarlisa, posted Nov 14, 2017

Sitting in my favorite restaurant one day I noticed a man who came in...he looked unhappy and mad with the world...A look I had seen many times before. I gave him my usual happy good morning but his response was less than friendly. He looked at me, sat down and buried his head in the menu.

I was not shocked by his response but I was curious if he would look up and give just a small hello or smile...over an hour passed and every time he looked my way...he looked meaner and meaner. Finally he called the waitress over and paid his bill...I turned my head away for just a second and he was gone.

I looked down at his seat and there it was -  a beautiful rolled up $100 bill. I was in shock...I quickly got up to retrieve the cash...in my head Right and Wrong were fighting it out. Before I knew it, I was racing behind the man to offer this gift of friendship back to him.

I yelled "sir" did you drop this?" He looked shocked...his face turned fire red and a lump came in his throat that could have chocked an Elephant. He looked at the ground and finally said ","yes and then he slowly said "thank you".

 Without even looking at me...he turned around, got in his car and drove away.. I said thank you to God for letting me change one person's opinion of possibly an entire race of people.

It made my heart happy all day yesterday, until i saw that the charges were reversed in our checking account. Kinda bummed, but i’ll continue raok! 😀
