Student's Generosity Toward Hungry Man Leads To Unexpected Blessing

One student’s love and generosity toward a hungry man resulted in a very unexpected blessing.

Anyone who believes that hunger is no longer an issue is badly mistaken. Sadly, some still are forced to go without food every day. Believe it or not, some of those individuals live in the United States. Yes, in the country where people develop diseases and conditions from overeating food, there are other Americans who fail to consume an adequate amount of food. 

Many organizations are dedicated to feeding the hungry and eradicating food insecurity. Every little bit helps; everything can make a difference in someone’s life. 

The only motivating factor when helping others should be improving someone’s life. However, as one clip on social media beautifully demonstrates, helping someone in need can have massive, unforeseen personal positive consequences. 

The short, minute-and-a-half clip begins with one man approaching a student sitting at a table studying. The man approached the student and asked him if he had any food. He was looking for something to eat because he was starving.

Immediately, the student shows great concern for the hungry man. He looks through his backpack, but when he comes up empty, he offers to take him to a nearby Tim Horton’s and “buy whatever you want.”

The student informs the hungry man that his parents taught him to “not keep anyone hungry.” He is bound and determined to buy this man food, so they go to the coffee shop. 

It’s also revealed that this student has been away from his family for eight months and has been unable to see them during that time because of travel expenses. 

The student buys the man the largest coffee they sell. Immediately, the hungry man—who was not actually hungry—repays the student for showing him love and kindness.

He gave the student $2,000 to see his family in India. 

The clip ends with the two sharing a loving embrace. 

Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.”
