Those Discouraging Phone Call

1 day this past week, I decided to stay home and catch up on a little bit of reading. It is not often I take a day and not visit the office and just pander round the home.

Sometimes it’s necessary to do anything, and I really don’t do it frequently enough. She would be gone the whole day, and so I’d have the whole day to myself. I had been looking forward to it. Who would not?I really was mistaken about this idea. For me to have a day by myself is a superb idea, but it’s back in Kansas.The wife left the building, so I’d settled down with a pile of books I needed to go through and, clearly, a hot cup of coffee into the left of me. I was anticipating a superb day. Then I got a phone call. I wasn’t prepared for the telephone call, so I replied, hoping to talk to someone.It was a reminder that my automobile warranty had expired, and when I press , I would be moved to someone who may renew it. They also said this is the last opportunity I have to renew my warranty.I wish to get the definition of this phrase”last.” If this is the last chance I have, why have I received hundreds of these phone calls?A couple of minutes later, another phone call came.I wrestle with the concept of, is it ok to lie to someone who is lying ?The lady on the phone congratulated me on winning two round-trip tickets to anywhere I needed to go. All I needed to do was come for their headquarters and they’d put us up for 3 days and 2 nights, and also the food has been included.I don’t understand how thoughts dancing into my mind, but this one did.I responded to the lady,”I’m sorry, but my religion does not permit me to fly on airplanes.”The crickets on the opposite end did a little concert and then she got back to me and told me I could give those tickets to anyone I wanted to. All I had to do would be to return to their headquarters, and everything would be OK.”My religion,” I clarified,”not only does not allow me to fly on airplanes but doesn’t allow me to give plane tickets to anyone. I appreciate your offer, but I can’t do it”Sometimes religion can come in handy. When I am through chuckling, I will confess my sin.There were a few other phone calls, and I responded quite similarly to all of them. If anyone can harass a telemarketer, it is my wife’s favorite husband. According to the individual on the telephone, they sent me notifications that my account was delinquent and that my power would be cut off today.This sort of rocked my day. And you also know what it’s like to have your electricity reinstated with the fees.As stated by the individual on the opposite end of the phone, I owed Duke electricity $998.59 for its previous eight weeks that I have not paid.If you would like to get my attention just tell me you need my cash.I then told him I did not have that much money to pay. He had been requesting a credit card number so that I could get up to date on my accounts.”I can help you ,” he said,”by lowering your payment to $698.59.”He could tell I had been hesitating here, and so he responded by saying,”If there’s anything incorrect, we’ll be able to refund your payment, so there’s no risk.”I began to realize I had been in the middle of a scam, and I didn’t know it. The moment I thought I knew I was in trouble but not the kind of trouble that he had been telling me.He gave me a few I could call, and I knew it wasn’t the right number. I thought about this, and possibly this scam was a payment for lying around the plane tickets. I could have been had.Thinking about what I really could have been included in attracted a tiny soul of repentance to my heart. I thought about a verse in the Bible. “Be not deceived; God isn’t mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).When I do negative things, I will reap unwanted things. And I was going to reap something really negative. But the thing which makes the distinction is recognizing it then repenting.
