Chick-Fil-A Owner Gives Homeless Man Free Meal & Own Gloves

Galatians 6:9 KJV And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

The owner of a Chick-Fil-A franchise in Birmingham, Alabama is gaining national attention after a customer secretly videotaped him showing Christ’s love to a homeless man.

The unidentified man walked into the store last week and asked owner Mark Meadows if he could work for some food.

“We made eye contact and I asked him what would he like, what we could do for him and then he asked if he could do some work to get something to eat,” Meadows told ABC News.

Meadows responded by having the man sit down and they gave him a meal on the house.  As the man was waiting for his meal, Meadows noticed he was rubbing his hands together and asked if the man had gloves.

When he said no, Meadows went into his office and brought out his gloves and gave them to the man.

Meadows was not intending to tell anyone about the incident but a customer recorded the encounter and posted it on social media.

“[My son] Bryson and I are sitting in Chick Fil A on 280. A man walked in to get warm with all of his earthly possessions on his back,” patron Andrea Stoker wrote in a status that has now gone viral. “The manager, who is on his break, got up and asked the man if he could get him anything. Before the man could even answer, the manager asked if the man had any gloves and handed him his, then got him the meal of his choice.”

“There is still so much good in this world and I’m so grateful that Bryson saw it all unfold,” she continued.
