Chick-fil-A refuses to give homeless man "leftovers"

It happened last month at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Murfreesboro, TN where Joey Mustain took little Stella for a daddy-daughter lunch. After lunch and some time on the playground, she traded her toy for an ice cream and wanted to eat it at a table, so they found a booth near the sales counter. That's when a homeless man walked in. He asked a server if they had any "extra food" and waited quietly for the manager as people near him kept their distance.

From his table, Mustain snapped this picture and posted it to Facebook, where it's had 100,000 shares. Even though he could only hear part of their conversation, he could tell the manager refused to give the homeless man leftovers. Instead, he offered him a complete hot meal if he let him pray with him. The man agreed, and in the midst of lunch hour rush, the manager put his hand on the man's shoulder and prayed. "I heard love in that prayer," said Mustain. "The homeless man was not a stain on business. He was the reason the store opened that morning. I encouraged Stella to watch, and when she asked what was happening and I told her, she bowed her head too," and learned what Matt. 25: 34-40 really means.
