One should never judge a book by its cover. This saying has been around for a very long time now. As a matter of fact, many generations have used this as a guide to live life by. However, these words remain as just words to some people as they still tend to judge others based on appearances.
While this is not a very good trait among people, we cannot deny the fact that this mindset still exists. There have been numerous instances where we have seen people get treated badly only because they appear to be different or inferior as compared to the normal people that we see.
But every once in a while, we see videos on social media platforms which remind us to never judge people based on appearance. This is exactly what is shown in a recent viral video uploaded by a Facebook page called Filmelon.
In the video, it shows a rugged, poor looking boy enter a restaurant. As he looks shabby and unclean, many people try to avoid him and give him estranged looks, as if implying that he didn’t belong there.
This was even worsen when the very owner of the restaurant asked the boy to move somewhere else so the other customers will not be bothered by his presence. Later into the video, the owner gave the boy a couple of pieces of bread, one of which the boy ate, the other he kept in his pocket.
Afterwards, he paid for the food he ordered and left the restaurant. As the owner went back to where the boy used to sit, he finds out that the boy, despite how poor he looked and how poorly he was treated, still managed to leave a tip to the owner.
This caused the owner of the restaurant to somehow breakdown in tears. He probably could not fathom how a boy who didn’t seem to have much to give, still managed to share his blessings to someone who almost shooed him away.
The store owner tried to make amends by trying to run after the boy. However, he was too late as he could no longer see him in sight.
Toward the end of the video, we once again get a glimpse of the poor looking boy. Apparently, the other piece of bread he kept in his pocket was one for her sister.
Indeed, we should never really judge people merely on their looks. Because a rich heart, may be hiding beneath a rather poor appearance.
Watch this until the end and try not to tear up. :(Courtesy: George Varghese | Follow Us @ www.instagram.com/filmelonInbox us | Go viral 🙂
