A viral video is sweeping across the internet, sending positive vibes and an inspiring message to all those who watch it. Eating Twinkies With God is one of those short films that makes you search within yourself and question your humanity.

Directed by Meir Kay and filmed by Joris Reynaud, these two friends released the project on March 16. Kay uploaded the video to his YouTube channel and Facebook fan page, which garnered more than 40 million views on Facebook within just one week.

It’s definitely becoming a very popular video, but what makes it so special? Well, it all has to do with a curious little boy and his small spiritual journey.
At the start of the video, the cute kid is in the kitchen grabbing a double-packed Twinkie out of the drawer and two juices from his fridge. He packs everything in his bag as his mom comes around the corner.

She asks “Now where are you off to?” Her son tells her with excitement in his voice: “I’m going to find God.”

Mom gives him the ‘okay’ and reminds him not to be late for dinner. He rushes out to catch the subway, and after a long trip across town, he ends up at a park.

He sits on a bench near a homeless woman who’s seemingly not in the best mood. The little guy pulls out one of his Twinkies and gets ready to bite into it, but then he realizes, maybe he should share.

He gives the other Twinkie to the woman who smiles and says ‘thank you.’ They soon enjoy each other’s company with a few giggles and small conversation.

Before he leaves, he gives the woman a hug, which makes her smile from ear-to-ear. It looks like the two have become new best buddies.

After viewing the video, it makes you consider the thought that maybe God’s character is shone in the way you positively treat others. Surely love and compassion for others can be discovered through an act of kindness, but through that act, God shines through.

Kay mentions on the YouTube video description: “Whether you believe or not, we all can agree that by helping each other, each good act that we do makes this world a brighter place. Let us rise to the occasion and be kinder to each other, to help one another. We are all on the same team.”

As a motivational speaker and community volunteer, Kay says the purpose behind most of his work is to encourage people to “achieve happiness every day, spread kindness, and live a positive life.” Eating Twinkies With God has definitely pushed a lot of people to join in with the conversation.

One Facebook user made a good observation about the message: “One good thing about this video is the innocence of a child. He didn’t judge the homeless person by her outward looks or her position in life. He saw someone special. He’s an angel.”

Once we put our differences aside, we will be much more opened to building healthier relationships with people around us. Those healthier relationships will eventually bring out the best in us—more happiness, positivity, and charity.

We all have the ability to spread love and kindness, so if this story has inspired you, make sure to share its message with others around you!
