Reaction on Social Media
- “It’s weird that trustworthiness has become so shocking to people”
- “This is an encouragement, not praise. Whoever does good things deserves our support”
- “I am puzzled by all the praise people get for staying away from sin. It’s his obligation to give this money back, it isn’t a charitable gesture.”
- “A good deed brings joy to people even when they have nothing to do with a situation”
- “There’s still some good in the world”.
Some people reacted that this was his responsibility and he should not be praised for anything but according to some people this was his humanity and he could show his greed if he wanted but he chose to be kind and helpful.
