Josh Abbott makes woman weep at Target!
Who doesn’t love Josh Abbott and his loving personality? The country music star has been keeping busy by helping people smile. While making a stop at Target he received a $5.00 gift card and passed it along to the woman standing behind him. And it overwhelmed the woman with joy because she promptly started to weep.
And that’s not all he did, he remembers the struggle of growing up in poverty—taking to Instagram and telling his family, friends and fans how he felt captioning the photograph:
I rarely post “good deeds” because I feel they can come across as “boastful” (Matthew 6:1), but in the hopes of encouraging you to help others, here goes:
While checking out at Target, I received a $5 gift card for a future purchase so I handed it to the lady behind me. She immediately teared up and couldn’t believe it. I recognized that look; it was the same look my mother had when I was a kid and we were dirt poor and others helped our family financially. So I knew to help her more. I handed her a $100 bill and said her items were on me this time. She bawled. She’s a single mother who is a teacher and said this year has been hard. I guess you just never know what someone is going through and the kindness of strangers always wins the day…I’ve made some wrong choices in my life, and I don’t believe good deeds necessarily balance it out; but I do believe in trying. I hope this message comes across as humbly and authentic as it is intended. It is because of all of you supporting our music that I’m able to help others in the first place. So thank you all!”
And this is a real lesson that we could all practice. Even buying someone a drink is doing something small to make someone smile. ( I remember one time someone in front of me bought my Starbucks. I know it doesn’t happen often but you know… It happened on a day when I needed it the most) and it’s important to be that loving civilian no matter who you are because in this world, we are all battling something and we are all trying to survive.
