Having never encountered a homeless man before, the little boy was taken aback by the man’s appearance, and began riddling his mother with questions.

“He’s homeless,” Ava Faulk explained to her son.

Still not understanding what his mother meant he asked, “Where is his house?”

Faulk said that after her son learned that the man was homeless and didn’t have any food, he insisted that they get him a meal.

“So Josiah jumped up and asked him if he needed a menu because you can’t order without one,” she said.

The little boy and his mother told the man they’d pick up the tab for whatever he wanted off the menu, and the man ended up ordering a burger with bacon. But before the man could begin eating, the little boy insisted that they do something first, which would end up bringing everyone in the restaurant to tears.

“I wanted to say the blessing with him,” said Josiah.

So he prayed in a voice as loud as he could muster, leaving everyone in awe.

“God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings, for our many blessings, Amen, Amen.”

The mother said that following her son’s prayer, everyone including the homeless man, was in tears.

“You never know who the angel on Earth is, and when the opportunity comes you should never walk away from it,” she said. “Watching my son touch the 11 people in that Waffle House tonight will be forever one of the greatest accomplishments as a parent I’ll ever get to witness.”

As parents, one of the greatest things we can instill in our children is compassion and and love for others. Imagine if all children had a heart as big as little Josiah’s?
