May 23: You’ll Never Guess Who Did This

A driver banged into another car as he pulled out of a supermarket parking lot in Oroville, California.

The unidentified man got out of his care and left a note on the windshield of the vehicle he hit.  He then banged into two more cars, also leaving notes, before finally making it to the street.

A bystander who saw what happened went to read what the driver wrote on the notes.  They read, “You’ll never guess who did this.”

The bystander then added this message to the bottom of each note:  “He’ll never guess who got his license number.”

Honesty should never be grounded solely in the fear that someone may be watching our misconduct.  God has endowed us with the “still small voice” of conscience.  Kepp yours tuned to a fine pitch by reflecting on eternal and human truths.  Then you’ll never have to worry about getting caught.

Take pains to have a clear conscience toward God and toward men.  (Acts 24:16) 

Holy Spirit, may I be responsive to Your inner promptings that tell me to do what is right.
