Western Auto

There is a church in our area made up of mostly poor people so Adela, who lives in my house, asked our children and staff to give to help them. So she went with Brandi, Georgie and Michelle to deliver toys, rice, beans, sugar as well as clothes for 20 families.

Walt and Randi will be going to the states from July 23rduntil August 13thand we need someone to come and look after their dorm of little boys. Pray and let us know.

 

When I was in high school I had an after school and Saturday job at Western Auto. The owner trusted me to the point he allowed me to work the cash register. It was an opportunity for me to steal. So I did! After I got saved and was working in California my conscience was pricked. The owner was so kind to me and I was untruthful.

Dottie and I came back from California and I went to my hometown to see the owner. He did not know what I had done so he welcomed me with great joy and his wife fixed me a breakfast. I had written a check large enough to cover what I had stolen.

Finally, I mustered up the courage to give him the check and confess what I had done. He cried! He was so disappointed in me. He tore up the check and I left broken hearted. Dishonesty can be an albatross around our necks.

The IRS has a saying for people who have filed false claims. “If you get to us first, we show mercy. If we get to your first, we carry out justice”. God is so rich in mercy. When the city of Nineveh was truthful about their sins God showed mercy.

The owner had never seen what I had done but God saw it all. Genesis 16:13 “Thou God seeth me”. Proverbs 28:13 “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper”. Maybe no one knows what we have done but God does.
He is the only one who matters. We have to be truthful to our conscience.
