R.I.P. Truett Cathy
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
“I’d like to be remembered as one who kept my priorities in the right order.”
Those are the words of Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-a, who died yesterday at 93. Mr. Cathy was known for living out his deep faith. Beyond closing his restaurant on Sunday, to honor the Christian Sabbath, he supported foster homes, summer camps, scholarships, and, yes, traditional marriage.
When pre-teen vandals caused $30,000 in damage to his home, he didn’t prosecute them, lest a criminal record tarnish their lives. He worked out a deal with their parents to keep them from television and video games, and to write 1000 times, “I will not vandalize other people’s property.”
Thank you Truett Cathy for keeping your priorities in the right order.
