Chick-fil-A opens on a Sunday for a very good reason

Chick-fil-A opens on a Sunday for a very good reason December 29, 2015

Everyone who loves Chick-fil-A is aware that the chain is never open on Sundays. (As a general rule-of-thumb, that’s exactly when your strongest Chick-fil-A craving normally hits).  This company-wide policy provides their staff the opportunity to attend church if they so choose and spend time with their families.

This week, several Chick-fil-A’s throughout Texas made a rare exception to this rule, but for a great reason!

Several locations around Northeast Texas opened their doors last Sunday to help feed those affected by the 11 tornadoes that ravaged Texas.

A spokesman for the chain told CNBC that “The locations were not open to the public, but team members from various restaurants in the area did volunteer to prepare and distribute free food to responders and others affected by the tornadoes—serving those in need during this tragic event.”

Although Chick-fil-A has had its brand dragged through the mud in recent years for its owners’ commitment to Biblical principles, the chain has stood firm in its convictions and continued to remain a shining example of how a business can serve its community.

The liberal left loves to imagine Christians as these strange creatures who only care about hot-button social political issues like protecting all lives and making sure families are stable so future generations are responsible… crazy things like that! But it’s stories like this that show what it looks like when Christians truly apply the Bible to everything we do. Because Christ died on the Cross, our lives are no longer our own.

That means we stand up for unborn children.  That means we stand up for strong families.  And that means we sacrifice our time and money to open up Chick-fil-A’s on Sunday to help those hit by tragedies like the tornadoes that ravaged Texas over the Christmas weekend.
