Doing the right thing

Doing the right thing can be mistaken for being mean. For instance, seeing someone doing the wrong thing, giving them a warning not to and they still press forward with it calls for your response. You are now in a unpopular position. Do you go along with it or report it?

The woman was going to falsify a report. I told her not to and that I would not be a part of it and left. She called to tell me she had the report ready. Once again I warned her about falsifying a report. She said the report was true. After telling her I would check on it’s validity, she presented the report to me as true.

I investigated and found she had falsified the report. My response was to report her for falsifying. What would you have done? And why?

In as much as I am asking you, I will answer my question. The lady put my integrity and values into question. I did not put myself there. She had ample opportunity to do the right thing. I wanted my integrity to be kept in check. It has cost me her friendship. I regret that. However, the favor of God is most important to me.

Oh, her excuse, everyone else is doing it.

Until next time,
