"This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, and ask where the good way is, and walk in it. You will find rest for your soul."

"An Honest Man"

gardner1_400By Jerry Stewart Vision Productions   THE TRUE STORY IS TOLD OF A YOUNG MAN WHO WALKED FOUR MILES TO RETURN A TOTAL OF SIX CENTS.  BUT THE QUESTION IS JUST WHY DID HE DO IT?  

    IN THE EARLY 1800’S A YOUNG MAN WAS WORKING AS A CLERK IN A GENERAL STORE IN THE TOWN OF NEW SALEM. WHILE HE WAS BUSY ASSISTING ANOTHER CUSTOMER, A LADY CAME IN, PICKED UP HER ORDERED GOODS AND PLACED HER MONEY ON THE COUNTER.

    LATER, THE YOUNG MAN REALIZED SHE HAD PAID SIX CENTS TOO MUCH. THAT REALLY BOTHERED HIM. SO, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, HE WALKED A FULL FOUR MILES TO RETURN THE OVERPAYMENT – AND SHE WAS SHOCKED.

    AND JUST WHO WAS THIS YOUNG MAN? FUTURE PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN. YOU SEE, THE NICKNAME “HONEST ABE” WASN’T JUST A SLICK CAMPAIGN SLOGAN – IT WAS TRUE. ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS A MAN OF GREAT CHARACTER.

    BUT THE QUESTION IS THIS: WHAT EFFORT DO YOU MAKE TO RETURN SOMETHING THAT IS NOT YOURS? THINK ABOUT IT.
