JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Tuesday morning, WLBT's digital team posted a story to our Facebook page from our sister station in Hawaii about a restaurant server who received a $1000 dollar tip.

This story caught the eye of a local waitress who experienced the same kind of generosity from a customer she was serving.

Last spring, Amanda Thomas was on her second night of training at Jaco's Tacos on State Street in Jackson. She was waiting on a local man and his guest and she says she told them nothing about her.

When they left she discovered he had left her a $1000 dollar tip for a $100 dollar meal. She says that the man wrote on the receipt Jeremiah 29:11, which says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Thomas says she found out later that the man reportedly does not do this for everyone; just those who God says needs it.
