After the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans in 2013, Coach Andy Reid told players to celebrate but to do it wisely. After the game Chief’s defensive player Tambia Hali took 15 friends to a local restaurant for a huge all-you-can eat-meal. The bill totaled $1,800 and the restaurant automatically added and tip of $300. When Hali saw the bill, he was surprised that the tip was so small. He stunned employees when he added an additional gratuity of $1,000. The employees say Hali is a regular customer and a gracious tipper, but the size of this tip surprised them. One server said it really made their day. Hali says he only wanted to help others like he has been helped. In an interview later, Hali added, “I have been helped all my life to this point. However, I can give back. I try to do that. I do this all the time when I go out because these people work hard. I’m just fortunate to be in this position.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell

Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV) Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. (4) Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
