She said, “They need some simple research done, and with your math expertise, you would be a good choice.”
“Sure,” I told her, “Give me directions how to get there, and when to show up.”
This was a strange request, but I could understand that my friend was occupied doing her job and the Senior Accounts Payable person was busy and did not have time to research what they wanted me to do.
The Senior Accountant handed me last months account records, and told me the balance was off by ten cents, and I was hired to find it and correct it.
My question was, “Why not cover a ten cent error with an accounting adjustment and let it go?”
The accountant in no uncertain terms said, “We can’t do that. You must find the error and fix it properly.”
After being there for four days, I finally made a request that I be given the account records for the previous month.
God was gracious and it did not take me very long, and there it was - - big as you please, or should I say small as you please the ten cents worth of error.
In life there are times, when it is easier to sluff off the small stuff and let it go, and other times there is a need to search for the error and make a hard call to fix it right.
I am thankful that God has one book with our name in it, and all the other evidence against us has been washed away and our record has been made clean.
