i have heard a lot of wait staff people tell me that Christians are particularly bad tippers. Is that true? It was obviously true in the experience of those who told me. The "church crowd" people they served left low percentages.
Maybe i'm making something out of nothing, but it seems to me that this is just such a case where Christians ought to display generosity. Now i'm not trying to draw attention to what people think of us. i'm trying to spotlight what we ought to do regardless.
Are there cases where it just doesn't matter whether or not a Christian is generous with his/her money? And is tipping at a restaurant one of them? Or is this a particular case where imitating the generosity of Christ ought particularly to shine through in us? "How much would Jesus tip" doesn't seem like an easy question to answer. But it does seem obvious to me He wouldn't be stingy. What do you think?
