When a man takes his wife out to dinner, most people pay no mind. However, when a man takes a female out to dinner who is not his wife, some people take notice, as in the case of a particular couple over this past weekend.
A single father took his little six-year-old girl out for a Valentine’s Day dinner. A couple, who both grew up without fathers, took notice of the love being demonstrated by this father towards his daughter and decided to write him an encouraging note.
The father posted the note on Imgur, which read:
Sorry to spy, but my husband and I saw you out with your little date and were so impressed with what a great Dad you are.
From two adults who grew up without dads, it’s so important to have a male role model at a young age.
Keep up the good work Dad!
Dinner is on us!
Unable to see who left the note or who covered the bill, the single father took to Imgur in an attempt to reach out to the anonymous strangers who provided some much needed encouragement to him.
“I took my six year old daughter out to valentines [sic] dinner tonight when this happened,” he wrote. “I wont [sic] lie, I teared up at the table. So, thank you random strangers. Thank you.”
Simple acts of kindness towards our fellow man create special memories and give great encouragement. As Christians, our kindness to others is demonstrated not so much in our words, but in our deeds (1 Jn. 3:18). One day we will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and give an account of the deeds done in our body whether good or bad (2 Cor. 5:10). In that day, will we hear Him say, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matt. 25:40)”?
