|Lost Wallet and My Uncles Mistake|
This post is linked to Peter Pollock’s One Word CarnivalThe word is; Mistakes. My Uncle made a big mistake.
My Uncle who lived with us, was laughing as he told my mother of his marvelous find.
He had found a wallet that had money in it. He showed it to Mother and she could see that there was almost $200 there.
My Uncle showing the found wallet to my mother was his big MISTAKE.
I was about 9 years old and taking this all in with my big eyes and wondering “What next!”
It was then that Mother noticed the picture on the driver’s license, and she exclaimed, “I know this fellow and he goes to our church. You must give it to me and I shall return it at once.”
Now my Uncle’s happy face turned to ashen gray, as he realized he had told the wrong person of his fabulous discovery.
Mother made a telephone call and within 20 minutes or so, here came our friend to our house to retrieve his lost item.
He offered my Uncle a reward but uncle refused as he mumbled that he was happy he was the one who found it and was glad to give it back to its owner.
At least there were two happy persons that day; my mother and our friend with his wallet returned.
This friend of ours, had angels watching over him even in his carelessness to lose something so valuable. My angel mother was there to give assistance also.
If you have lost anything, I pray that an honest someone will find it and return it to you.
The Bible tells us of lost things and then found. Jesus said the good shepherd will search for a lost sheep until he finds it. The Holy Spirit is still searching for the lost ones.
The worst thing to ever lose is your own soul.
Make sure that doesn’t happen by receiving Jesus into your life today.
