We’re used to seeing big man Titus O’Neal slamming bodies and bouncing off the ropes as part of the Prime Time Players in the WWE, but his moves outside of the ring are even better.
Take this for instance. Recently, O’Neil bumped into two homeless people and decided to take them to dinner at the Yard House restaurant in San Diego.
However, things didn’t go as well as expected. The staff was distant and O’Neil’s guests didn’t seem welcome at all, as he noted on his Instagram account.
“‘I’m gathering homeless people to take them out to eat at @yardhouse last night I did the same thing and the manager seemed distant in Serving the two last night so I said instead of just posting I’ll gather more and eat lunch with them at that Resturant. They need to learn how to treat All humans as such. #ContentOfCharacter #AllLivesMatter”
Instead of turning over the tables or blasting the restaurant staff at the Yard House, O’Neil did something even better—he brought an even bigger group of homeless people to the restaurant the next day.
Doesn’t this remind you a little of the parable of the Great Banquet in Luke 14?
“The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.”
This time, the people at the Yard House got it right and the guests were treated with dignity and respect—the way they should be.
O’Neil wrote this next to the image on his Instagram account:
“Completely Different Response than Last night at the @YardHouse in San Diego I’m Not a Fan of Injustice or Prejudice of any sort towards Anybody. My Mother Raised Me with the Help of many others from all walks of life and there were many Times that I had to go without as a youth because of A Lack of Financial resources. People will categorize those that they can’t relate to criticize those that stand up and speak out against what’s wrong all until it directly affects them. I’m not the richest man in the world, but Money, Fame and Status have never held me Bondage because at the end of the day I’ve Gone without before and God has always provided for me. Now I have the opportunity to do the exact thing that others did for me when I had nothing to give them in return….LOVE OTHERS!!! Thanks to those that accepted Help & Those that Treated my guest at lunch as Humans, Patrons and Gods People. On to Ontario for @WWE Live tonight #WWEOntario”
O’Neil followed up by posting this verse from Matthew 25:40:
“Whatever you do for the least of these brothers & sisters of mine, you did for me”
What a powerful reminder to treat all human beings with compassion and to reach out to those who are less fortunate with action, dignity, respect–all in the name of Jesus!
