And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families of their own. (Ex. 1:21)

KYLE THOUGHT MAYBE he was losing his mind. He could have sworn he had just written check number 47 yesterday. But today the pile of checks began with number 49. “No matter,” he thought. He must have remembered incorrectly.

Two days later, Kyle noticed it again. When he started to write a check for a vendor, the top check on the pile was now number 52. Where had 50 and 51 gone? Kyle felt a little suspicious and thought he should mention it to his supervisor. But he was surprised when his supervisor swiftly brushed off the incident as something Kyle shouldn’t mention again.

Kyle tried not to concern himself with it, but he couldn’t ignore it the next time he noticed something amiss with the checks. When he mentioned his observation again to his supervisor, the angry response told him that something deceitful was happening. And even though he knew things might not end up well for him, he brought the concern to their employer. He left their meeting with a weight lifted from his shoulders, confident he had made the right decision. Two weeks later, when he received a promotion, he was grateful he had followed his instincts.

Sometimes we are confronted with situations we believe are immoral. We may even be asked to cover them up. But the Lord upholds the righteous and blesses those who do what is right.

Make the choice to walk in honor and to receive God’s blessing.
