Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries

"Would You?"

October 2, 2013
Spanish Daily Devotions Penny 8-7-13(Jesus said) "But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High ...." Luke 6:35a
Most of you don't know, nor have you ever heard of, Joey Prusak.

That's because 19-year-old Joey, who is a manager at a Dairy Queen in Hopkins, Minnesota, is not the kind of person the media likes to promote. By that I mean Prusak isn't flamboyant, egotistical or immoral. Even so, today's Daily Devotion would like to tell his story.

A few weeks ago Prusak was serving a blind customer when the man dropped a $20 bill. The lady behind him picked it up and pocketed the cash. Politely, Prusak asked the lady to return the money to its rightful owner. The lady refused. That's when Prusak said, "Ma'am, you can either return the $20 bill or you can leave the store, because I'm not going to serve someone as disrespectful as you."

The lady left.

And Prusak ... well, he went to the blind man's table and gave him 20 bucks from his own pocket.

So that's the story. And how did I find out about it? Nope, Prusak didn't call me and say, "Hey, Pastor, guess what I just did?" The truth is neither I, nor anyone else, would have heard that story if it hadn't been for a customer at the restaurant who saw the whole thing and shared the story.

So why did Joey Prusak do what he did?

I'm sure it's not because the manager at the Hopkins DQ makes so much money he can afford to give away 20-dollar bills without noticing their loss. So why did he do it? Prusak, himself, supplies the answer: "I was just doing what I thought was right. I did it without even really thinking about it."

As Jesus promised, Prusak had done something good without expecting anything in return and now he has received some big rewards. Warren Buffet who owns DQ called him up and praised him. People all over have been sending Prusak cash as a way of thanking him for his example.

And what is Prusak doing with that cash? He's giving it to charity because it's the right thing to do.

Cool story, isn't it?

It's the kind of story that leads me to ask would we, God's saved children, have done as well as Joey? When I asked that question of myself, I was pretty positive I would have confronted the lady who stole the original $20. Yes, I would have done that.

But would I have given the man cash from my own wallet? Would you?

If not, maybe it's time we started to try and be the same kind of good-deed doer as is Joey Prusak, the 19-year-old DQ manager in Hopkins, Minnesota.

THE PRAYER: Dear Lord, quite often our actions speak louder than our talk. In word and deed let us all do that which glorifies the Savior because it is the right thing to do. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
