A shop owner has gifted a mentally challenged man a pair of sandals, after he (the mentally challenged man) unexpectedly walked up to the shop owner while he was in his shop attending to his customers. I bet everyone expected the shop owner to chase the man away. This act of humanity was shared by a young lady who witnessed the event, took pictures of it and posted it on social media.
She wrote: “Good morning… My experience yesterday’s
This mentally challenged man walked up to the shop owner where I went with my Aunty and he said to the shop owner
,plz sir give me sandals let me wear, the shop owner told him to pick the one on the ground but the man told him calmly that he can’t wear it that its already on the ground and that he wants sandals from the ones hanging, the guy brought 3 different sandals and asked him to check the one that can size him but he couldn’t bend,but the shop owner had to bend and start putting it on his leg,he tried the 3 but he finally choose the last one,he also gave him money to buy water because he said he needed to drink water…..I was so touched and I start feeling guilty immediately because I personally don’t like getting close to this kind of people because I always believe they will be very harsh and aggressive meanwhile they have feelings and pains like every other person…..let’s be kind to people like this too….be your brother’s keeper na like this no be for grave….God bless the owner of the shop”
Some people interpreted the event as a divine visit, that the mentally challenged man was God in human form, others said that the young man will soon have a divine experience, others wrote that “He is about to be blessed. His humility and ability to come down to the level of the poor has just been tested. He just proved to God that he can handle the amount of wealth and abundance that’s coming into his life soon.”
Another person wrote; “That guy just paid his tithe to God Almighty directly, he doesn’t need a pastor’s blessings. This is the best way to pay tithe to God.” and “‘s very rare for such people to ask for things like this, they normally ask for food or money to buy food…
Though things like this happen sometimes to pull people down, I strongly believe there’s something attached to this; a blessing.
I believe there’s a door that needed to be open for breakthrough for the shoe seller and this kind gesture is the key to open that door.”

Well, that was humanity and humility in action.
