In a little country store in Illinois, there was a tall country boy serving as a clerk. One day an old woman came into the store to buy some goods. She handed the clerk a bill & he took the money due him & gave the change back to her.
That night when he balanced his cash book, he found he had a few cents more than he should have had. He went back in his mind over all his sales of the day & he remembered how much change he had given the old lady that morning. He had failed to give her as much as he should have done. Those few pennies belonged to her.
He put on his hat, closed the store & walked several miles to return the pennies to the old woman. This country boy was Abraham Lincoln, who, as you know, later became President of the United States.
Jesus said: “Whoever is faithful in small matters will be faithful in large ones; whoever is dishonest in small matters will be dishonest in large ones.” (Luke 16:10 GNB).
“A wife who is 85% faithful to her husband is not faithful at all. There is no such thing as part-time loyalty to Jesus Christ.” - Vance Havner.
