WHAT WOULD YOU DO ... IF THIS HAPPENED TO YOU?
What would you do if this happened to you?
Wait before you answer!
Think about it!
Here are the scenarios: 1. The bank teller gave you substantially too much money back. 2. You saw your friend’s husband cheating. 3. You saw someone stealing in a department store. 4. You left the store and discovered the clerk inadvertently didn’t ring up a pricey item that was in your bag. 5. You saw your married boss out on a date with a fellow employee. For these and other similarly situated matters, what would you do? 1. Would you spread the news down the gossip mill; 2. Would you keep your mouth closed; 3. Would you angrily or diplomatically confront the wrongdoer; 4. Would you pray for the abuser and the abused; 5. Would you report it; return it; turn your head; ignore it, or simply mind your own business; 6. Would you let honesty rule? There are no boiler plate answers in situations whereby you could idly do nothing, wisely do what’s right, or inquisitively stick your nose into matters that are clearly none of your business. Here’s to hoping that your and my conscience, home training, and spiritual foundation will guide us to do the right thing! The axiom, “Let your conscience be your guide“ will probably prove to be beneficial in the final decision!
Doing the right thing (which varies by person) is the best answer!
So, what would you do if any of the above scenarios happened to you?
Think before you respond; think before you act!
Tomorrow may bring you a challenge that will put your home training and conscience to work! Photo reprint: www.techniquespourlestimedesoi.info
