We can learn from people of all ages. Five-year-old Josiah Duncan reminds of us this.
Duncan and his mom, Ava Faulk, were at a Waffle House in Prattville, Alabama, where Duncan took notice to and became fascinated by a homeless man who was sitting outside of the restaurant.
Duncan, like any curious five year old, started asking his mom questions about the man.
Duncan asked his mom about the concept of being homeless.
“‘He’s homeless,’ the little boy’s mother explained. ‘What does that mean?’ he responded. ‘Well, that means he doesn’t have a home,’ Mom continued.
Once Duncan realized that the man didn’t have a home or family, he insisted that his mother buy the homeless man a meal. Once his mother agreed to doing so, and the man came into the Waffle House, Duncan stopped at nothing to ensure that the man had a temporary home and family.
When Duncan noticed no one approached the homeless man to take his order, he provided him with a menu, both calling attention to him and encouraging him to order. Though that in itself was an act of kindness, Duncan didn’t stop there.
When the homeless man received his food, Duncan explained that he wanted to say grace with the man. He then proceeded to sing and repeat “Thank you for our blessings” with the homeless man, which filled the restaurant with both tears and an experience that everyone could learn from.
