GIVE WHAT YOU HAVE To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Once, several years ago, a certain woman in front of me rummaged through her purse looking for a gift card to complete the remaining $14 of her grocery purchase, which was just over $30. When she found her gift card and the cashier swiped it, the card was empty. I quietly slid $14 to the cashier. Winking secretly at me, she tried the gift card one more time, then acted as if the transaction had gone through successfully. The woman got the groceries that she needed without finding out that I’d paid the remainder of her bill.
As far as I can recall, this has always been my modus Operandi, it must have been the right thing to do since incredibly amazing goodness has been showered on me from above. I have been weathered and shaped by many painful, even inexplicable hardships yet, so too, has the myrrh oil of blessing been copiously poured on my head. The journey is of little relevance, what ultimately matters, is the promised destination.
Was the above “lie” justified?
