The surprising decision a Boston dad made after encountering road rage (Video)

BOSTON DAD
Share

The other driver was understandably bewildered at this man’s response.

Daryl C. Silva of The Boston Dad, a YouTube comedy channel about a proud Bostonian father and his family who recently relocated to Florida, had a different kind of video for his followers last week after an unexpected encounter with road rage. When another driver flipped him off, Silva chose not to argue with him as he might’ve done in the past, but instead he offered to buy the man a coffee. “It seems like you’ve had a bad day,” he told him. “It seems like you could use one.”

The driver was understandably bewildered at his response, but took him up on the offer.

Silva credits the Holy Spirit with his ability to remain calm. “That’s what happens when you got God in your life,” he said. “When the Holy Spirit convicts you, when It speaks to you and you listen and obey, the most powerful, amazing things ever will happen.”

The two men prayed together, a moment Silva says brought a lot of healing. “If somebody is acting cruel to you, mean to you, they need that heart of yours. They need God more than anyone. Answer everything with love.”

You can hear the whole story in the video above.
