Jeff Louis is a pizza delivery guy who was asked to come in early to deliver some pizzas to a church. When he arrived at the church with all the pizzas, he was asked to bring one pizza up to the front of the church, on stage, to the pastor. The pastor had planned to give him a $100 tip.
Pastor Ken Wright said:
Yeah, I just thought, ‘Let’s tip him $100. It’s the holiday season.’ “
The congregation thought it was a good idea, too. The pastor explained:
You know, it was spontaneous. It just happened. They [congregation members] started lining up one by one with their own cash tips.”
Jeff ended up receiving $700!
Jeff was so moved that he posted an emotional YouTube video, talking about how he had been struggling to “stay clean” and just “get my life back,” something he did not share with the pastor or the congregation. You can see that the gesture meant the world to him. Get some kleenex ready and take a look at Jeff’s video below. It just goes to show: you never know what someone is going through and how a small act of kindness on your part might really make a difference to someone.
