To be promoted in life, I do my best to take good care of what I already have. If I can’t handle what’s been entrusted to me, there’s no need to be trusted with more. (Matt. 25:21)
I went to the market this week, and as I was putting up my shopping cart, I noticed the carts were askew. I took a minute to straighten them out, by placing the large ones on the left and small carts on the right. This gave ample space for more carts.
There was a young man sitting in a car in front of the carts watching me. He could tell I didn’t work there, so he was probably wondering why I was doing that.
This was more than just returning my cart. I was straightening all of them.
Walking back to my truck I thought, “There’s always someone watching.” I paused a moment to take in my surroundings and it didn’t bother me that someone had seen what I’d done. I know there is One who is always watching, and that’s really all that matters.
