chickfilla-inaOne way that Rachel Joy Scott showed the love of Jesus to her fellow students at Columbine High School was by loving them. As she wrote:

“I have this theory that if one person could go out of their way to show compassion, it could start a chain reaction. … How do you know that trust, beauty, and compassion won’t make the world a better place?”

In the wake of the horror in Orlando, one restaurant tested that theory. As Todd Starnes writes on, they didn’t do it or publicity and they didn’t do it for profit.

“So why is Chick-fil- A so generous?

“It’s because Chick-fil- A’s number one priority is not to make a profit (which they do.) And it’s not to make the best chicken sandwich in the world (which they do).

“Their number one corporate priority is to ‘glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil- A.’”
