Running into Shaq at Home Depot turned into a special blessing for one family after the former NBA star treated them to a big purchase.
A seemingly insignificant and unexpected act of kindness can go a long way in changing someone's day, week, life and entire outlook. What one person may see as small, such as holding the door, can have massive ramifications, bringing about change for good.
A short, 50-second video posted on Twitter shows former Los Angeles Laker Shaquille O'Neal performing a random act of kindness for a family shopping in Home Depot.
Family Bumps Into Shaq At Home Depot
The video shows the 7-footer walking through the store as he approaches two women, who calmly greet Shaq.
"Nice to meet you," one of the women says as she shakes the NBA legend's hand.
Shaq responds by asking them what items they are purchasing at Home Depot.
"We are buying the washer and dryer," one of the two women tells Shaq.
Shaq states in a calm and matter-of-fact manner, "I'm gonna pay for it."
The women cannot believe what they have just heard, that Shaq will be picking up the tab for their new household appliances.
"Really! Oh, my God!" one of the women reacts.
They can't contain their excitement at Shaq's kind act and begin screaming and yelling in joy. There are smiles all around as Shaq gives both women hugs right there in the middle of Home Depot.
One woman exclaims, "Bless you, bless you, bless you" as she takes a selfie with Shaquille.
The video ends with the women with a Home Depot employee, selecting their preferred washer and dryer.
What a kind and generous act from a man who is known for doing such things for people. He recently bought a family with nine children a brand new 15-passenger van, according to GodUpdates.
Shaq may have scored thousands of points and won NBA titles during his playing career, but with his continued acts of kindness off the court, he's changing lives and still gaining fans.
Ephesians 4:32 "And be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you."
