Ann Arbor, Mich., Chicago, Los Angeles, South Bend, Ind. A group of “anonymous good Samaritans” is making the rounds and leaving happy servers in their wake. Known only as “TipsforJesus,” these men have left tips ranging from $500 to $10,000 across the country, reports NPR
. Many of the tips coincide with high-profile college football matchups, such as the $10,000 in tips left on the same date as the Notre Dame-USC game.
Who are they? Besides an apparent enjoyment of college football, who knows? Why are they doing this? Simply to spread the love of Christ. As their Instagram profile
says, “Doing the Lord’s work, one tip at a time.”
It’s a great story as we enter Advent. While you may not be able to give large amounts of money away to strangers, think about how you can love family, friends and coworkers in small, yet meaningful ways. A smile. A thank you. A phone call. Perhaps some of those Christmas goodies you’ve been baking. Be inspired, and spread the love!
