NBC 4 (Los Angeles):

"Tips for Jesus" Doles Out More Than $50K to Bartenders, Servers

"Tips for Jesus" is their name, leaving massive tips at restaurants is their game. From a $1,500 tip at a restaurant in San Francisco to a $10,000 tip left at a bar in Indiana, a mysterious person -- or people -- have been extra generous. And it’s all being chronicled on Instagram under the username @tipsforjesus.
The account launched in September, and has more than 16,000 followers as of Tuesday -- which happens to be Giving Tuesday, a national initiative to encourage charity at the start of the holiday shopping season.
The few dozen photos that have been posted thus far capture snapshots of receipts, with signatures simply signed “@tipsforjesus," in reference to their Instagram account.

I hope the recipients know enough to save some of that cash for when tax time rolls around.

What I find strange is that there is no name or anything available even though they always pay with a credit card. How is this person still anonymous?

"Hallelujah!

John 2:6 Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons.

7 Jesus told them, "Fill the jars with water." So they filled them to the brim.

8 Then he told them, "Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter." 6 So they took it.

9 And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from (although the servers who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom

10 and said to him, "Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now."

11 Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs in Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.

A ministry has to start somewhere. Since the Lord began by making some alcohol ... :shrug:

... Jesus rewarded (repentant) tax collectors, prostitutes, and at least one thief with the riches of his kingdom. Hopefully these bartenders and patrons will be led to something better than a weekend toast or two. :hmmm: ;)
