There are some key questions that affect the tip when you go to a restaurant. The first thing is: Are you cheap? Some people have a no tip philosophy, so that immediately will effect their tip. In other words do you value service to begin with? The second consideration is the food. Was it good? Did I enjoy my meal? But the biggest determining factor is the waiter or waitress.
Have you ever been at a restaurant and the waitress says “here,” throws the plate down, gives you the evil eye and generally looks like they do not want to be there?
Part of you says, I wish he or she would have just stayed home. Sometimes it is so bad, that you are thinking, I would have preferred to go into the kitchen and gotten my own food, because service was so sloppy. And if you are like me then you do not like it, you do not appreciate it! Their service affects their tip.You are blessed to be a blessing. Click To Tweet
Then there is the waitress who greets you with a smile, and says “Welcome to Jack’s Rib Joint, it is so nice to have you dine with us today.” Followed by “let me get your drinks.” “What would you like today?” “Watch out the plate is hot!” “Can I show you the desert menu? I will bring you the desert tray.” “Hey let me get those crumbs.” “Is there anything else I can do for you?” And finally, “Have a great day!!”
This will impact you even if you are cheap, it will affect you in a way that you are likely to leave a blessing behind. There are a lot of Christians who want a blessing, but they offer God cheap service. Their attitude is “I’m here because I am supposed to be.” There is no joy, there is no energy… there is nothing. But their attitude is “God, I want a blessing. Please make that person tip me big.” Let not that man think that he should receive anything of the Lord!!
Help us continue helping others!
2 Samuel 24:24 (NKJV)
Then the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
Luke 21:1-4 (NKJV)
And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, “Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.”
2 Corinthians 9:7 (NKJV)
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
