"Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in your power to do it." (Proverbs 3:27)
Here's a perfect follow up to our conversation yesterday about passing the "honesty test".
In Arkansas a woman's stolen cash was turned over to police with a letter of apology from the thief who took it from her wallet.
Susan McNabb said she left her wallet, and the $160 cash it contained, behind at a Walmart and when she returned a short time later, the wallet was still there but the cash was gone. "Then I went down to the city police and reported it," McNabb told KARK-TV.
McNabb said she was surprised when police called her Wednesday morning to say someone had come by the station and dropped off an envelope containing $160 cash and a note.
"To the lady that left her wallet at Walmart...please forgive me as I always strive to have integrity, and that day I failed miserably," the note read.
Police said the woman who brought in the envelope left without giving her name.
McNabb said the woman's change-of-heart has inspired her to spend the money on helping others.
Follower of Jesus...Have you ever been convicted by the Holy Spirit to right a wrong?
