It was just a normal father-daughter outing for Tennessee dad Joey Mustain and his daughter, Stella. The two were enjoying each other's company while dining at their local Chick-fil-A, when they witnessed something truly remarkable--and got an important life lesson.
As the two were eating, a homeless traveler came in to the restaurant and asked if they had any extra scraps of food he could have.
"Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes. His hair was matted, and his beard wasn’t a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn’t get to shave as often as most of us do. People near him kept their distance, but that didn’t stop him from being kind" to the other patrons, the emotional father wrote on Facebook after the incident.

"All I could pick up on of the conversation was the manager saying that he’d love to give him a full, warm meal--not just scraps or extras--and the only thing he required was that the man let him pray with him," Mustain wrote.
The man agreed, and right there in the busy cashier's line, the two gripped hands and began to pray. Mustain and his daughter bowed their heads in prayer as well.
"I love teaching my daughter life lessons, and I also love being there to watch other Christians teach her life lessons. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, for taking care of the latter today."
