A Gift From the Heart

A Gift From the Heart

With so much going on in the world today, it’s easy to lose sight of those in our midst who are truly good. There are many like those from the New Life Covenant Church in Chicago who surprised a pizza delivery driver with a total of an $1800 tip. The woman, who’s struggling as a single mom to take care of her children, was so taken by the generosity of strangers that “all {she] could do was cry.”

The delivery driver was completely unassuming as she went about her job on February 25, 2018. When she arrived, the pastor brought her to the stage where he presented her with a $100 tip. That day was completing a month filled with challenges presented by the pastor for his parishoners to do the right thing. The woman accepted the tip, as others came forward with theirs, and they eventually filled the basket. Whether you identify yourself as a member of a faith, or simply believe in the philosophy of paying it forward, good deeds bind a community together with a sense of purpose.

In fact, the woman was so filled with the spirit of generosity that she shared her good fortune with her coworkers. She stated that she “felt like some coworkers were just the same as me, in the same place.” That’s the way it works, when you see someone doing a good thing, it inspires you to want to do the right thing.
