Two Fifty

The Lord impressed upon me to return the two dollars and fifty cents to the store Manager. She previously returned the money after I complained about the taste of a bottled coffee drink that was expired, she gently stated that it was a “best by” date.

Even when I moved out of the area, the Lord reminded me that I failed to return it.  Two years went by, I came across a receipt from ‘that’ store – it bothered me.  I knew I had to act.  A week later, coming home from a conference, there was the store?  I pulled in, yes, the employees said, the store is in a new location!

Seemingly benign amount of money.  She almost didn’t want to take it; leaving, I felt a relief.  It’s for the Lord to say and for us to do.

Dear Lord, help us to hear Your voice and act accordingly, in Jesus’ name.

“So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed than the fat of rams.”

1Samuel 15:22 (NKJV).
