An Honest Employee October 8, 2015

A house keeper for Days Inn wanted to be a “good role model” for her kids, when she returned $4,700 which she found in one of the rooms she was cleaning. She quickly returned the purse to the front desk. When the owner was located, she received “a nice little reward.” But she also gained the respect of her fellow employees, her family and a clear conscience. Wise Solomon, in the Book of Proverbs wrote, “The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of the heart.” That refers to our conscience given to us all, by our Maker. Face it! We know right from wrong, but often choose the wrong way, because we all have a sinful nature. Dr. Luke in the Book of Acts in the New Testament exhorts us, “Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…” That’s possible because, as Peter wrote, “Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.”
