YW Manual 3 Lesson #41 - Being Dependable

This Lesson Reminded me of a seminar I went to almost 10 years ago.  The theme was "Be Your Word."  The lecturer talked about Dependability and Integrity in the context of work mostly, but it was such a good message that it has stuck with me all these years.  I have tried to be the type of person who you can trust to do what they say they will.  I have tried to be honest in ALL my dealings.  In fact, more than once I have had to return to Wal-Mart to pay for a pack of gum, or spool of ribbon which was hiding in the basket and didn't get paid for.  Sometimes I get a funny look or comment, to which I always reply that "hell isn't worth 97 cents" - for which I usually get a laugh and nod of the head.  But seriously, are we compromising what we know to be right and true for something as trivial as a proverbial pack of gum?  I hope not, and I tried to convey that to my girls.  I think they got it.
