My items were few in number, so I decided to go through the self help line where you scan your own items.
Quickly I ran each item through the process, and paid for my purchases. I then hastily placed my bags into my shopping cart and sped out to the parking lot.
As I loaded my goods into my van, I noticed there on the bottom of the shopping cart, one lonely zucchini squash that I had forgot to scan and pay for.
Oh yes, I was in a hurry, but I knew the few cents that I owed for this item, must be paid for. Otherwise I would not be able to sleep good tonight.
Hurrying back into the store; again I got in line at the “Do it yourself scanner.”
There you go; 34 cents was my purchase. I decided to find change in my purse and enter the coins one at a time. Plunk, plink, paid in full.
Taking my receipt, I left the store, feeling good about being honest in the smallest of things.
Now Lord, help me to be honest about the bigger things!
