Breakfast was ‘yummy in my tummy’ with an assortment of berries and granola and all sorts of other delicious goodies. After partaking in the lovely offering I quickly sent an email to the organizer of the charity fundraiser breakfast that I had eaten without paying because I had been short of cash.
I was surprised at the reply which was, exclamation and all, ‘thanks for being so honest!” I won’t deny that I felt the the prick of pride. What a good little Sanji I am, I thought to myself as I gave myself a mental back pat….But then I thought, why? What I did was so BASIC! I mean the money raised went to help children with a serious illness. Is our world so berefit of human decency that people are surprised (& I am proud) at my simple act? Sadly, apparently.
It is so easy to sell my integrity. Whether it is the 50 cents extra in change received at the store or a little white lie, the world gives me subtle ways to sell myself ever day.
How much are you worth? As a Christian, I can answer that easily, if not simply – the price of Jesus’ life.
Make your choices reflect your incalcuable value.
