Emotional Restaurant Scene: Man Gives Hard-Up Waiter $300 Christmas Tip

Maurice Green, a Texas man out for dinner with his family, discerned that their waiter was unhappy and decided to do something to cheer him up. He asked the young man what his name was and how his day was going. The waiter said his name was Johnny and that his day had indeed been “kinda rough.”

“I kinda sensed that,” Maurice told him. He then handed Johnny a very generous tip — $100.

“I wanna sow into your life,” he told the waiter.

Johnny was momentarily speechless and his eyes began to well up with tears.

“You just paid off my car, sir,” he told Maurice before shaking his hand.

“I can sense you’ve been working hard, and I think you done had a bad day,” Maurice told Johnny. “And so God told me to sow into your life big time.”

He continued, “Keep being who you are, keep being nice, don’t let people frustrate you, because people are not nice, and this family – the Green family – wants to bless you. Merry Christmas.”

His next move totally stunned the emotional young man.

“You know what? Let me do better than that,” Maurice said, handing Johnny two more 100 dollar bills.

“I’m into blessing people,” he said.

Maurice posted the video on YouTube, saying: “Share this video to inspire someone to remember that no matter what you’re going through, God will take care of you in a MAJOR way.”
