Living the Dream

"Radical Generosity

"During a Saturday workshop the attendees split into groups and went out for lunch to local restaurants to see what God would do. One team of eight went to an Italian restaurant. The waitress was helpful but was not open to receive prayer. The team decided to surprise her with radical generosity.

One person paid the bill with a 20% tip on his credit card. The rest of the group put down cash that ended up totaling slightly more than the amount paid on the credit card - ie. overall more than a 120% tip. They scribbled ‘Thank you” on a napkin and went out of their way to verbally thank her as they walked out.

The next day, the credit card owner received a voice message from the waitress (he had left his business card). She was confused about the payment and letting him know that he had already paid the tip on his credit card and not sure if the cash was a mistake. She was happy to give it back and unsure what was going on. “Please call me back.”

Next step - credit card owner would love to explain personally by making another visit to the restaurant... Rich Lambert, Phoenix, NY (May, 2014)"
