A homeless man has shown unexpected gratitude after he was gifted with cash for food. In a video shared on social media, the man can be seen begging a Good Samaritan to stop giving him "so much" money.
BI Phakathi shared the video on social media and it went viral. It showed him speaking to a homeless car guard named James. He asked James how much money he would like and the humble man asked for R10. Phakathi gave me him the money then added a little more, much to the man's surprise.
The excited car guard said he would buy food and shoes. Phakathi added another R100 note and the man began to protest that he was being given too much and what he had was enough.
The heart-warming video was appreciated by social media users. Facebook user Andile Rio said:
"You get so called Men of God driving cars worth millions but cannot do what this man does, I always shed tears because of what you do. God bless you."

"These homeless people are rich at heart. He was like this is enough this is enough. Thank you brother BI Phakathi you are such a blessing. I just came across one dude in Uganda who started doing the same thing like you do. I tried tagging you in one of his videos but I guess you get lots of notifications"
