Josiah was about to go for a fun dinner with his mom when he saw something that most other people would just walk on by.
He saw a homeless man outside the local Waffle House restaurant they were going. The 5 year old boy saw the homeless man was filthy and smelly and had a small bag for all his belongings. But he saw something else too. He saw a human being in need.
Josiah insisted that the man head inside the restaurant with them and order some food. But his actions didn’t stop with providing the man with a hot meal. His simple act of kindness was followed up with an amazing act of faith that touched everyone around.
“I wanted to say the blessing with him,” Josiah said.
And Josiah did, publicly, with 11 other customers watching. Josiah sang the blessing as loud as his little voice could muster.
“God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen.”
The homeless man started crying and so did the fellow diners around. It was a truly touching moment for everyone there. Whether you are a Christian or not, it is truly touching to see a child care and love a stranger from the bottom of his heart.

Sometimes it takes the truly takes a child, who doesn’t see wealth or poverty, to see that someone is hungry and alone and needs help. Josiah, little man – you ROCK!
