(RP) Do The Right Thing

A young man and his father were on vacation. On the first night, the young man went out to the rental car to grab the rest of his luggage. There was a woman that walked up to him and said “Do you have any money to spare, my car ran out of gas and I don’t have any money on me.” The young man though about the five dollars that he had in his pocket, but wanted to use it for some snacks for his hotel room. After thinking about it, he said “No, I’m sorry I don’t.” After he walked upstairs to his room, the key card was not working so he went to the front desk to get it activated. He saw that lady again leaving the front desk and walking out of the hotel. He thought to himself again, is this five dollars really going to kill me. He ran after the lady and gave her the five dollars that he had.

After he walked away, he had this great smile on his face. He had this sweet feeling inside, it was a great feeling because he made a sacrifice to do what he knew was right.

There are many times when God and the universe give us opportunities to make this world a better place. There are even more times when people look at these opportunities and turn their head.

There is a great power of good in this world, greater than anyone will ever know. This power can change your life or someone else life at anytime you want it to…you just have to make the sacrifice. Will you do the right thing when your opportunity comes?
