What happens when you do your duty to God? How is this compared to when you do your duty to man? Let’s start with the first. In the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic, I was relieved of my duty to attend Sunday Mass by God’s representative here on Earth, the Church. Fait accompli.
Now man’s law requires that I have the car inspected every year. No big deal, right? The car’s running well, and I just bought a new set of tires. Well, they took a bit long with the inspection, for which they didn’t charge me, but guess what my bill for necessary repairs at the end of the day was? $1,666.00. That’s called dealing with man.
There was one relieving moment in that bill. The car company was going to charge me 3% service tax if I used my credit card. But the service manager, a kind soul, was not going to allow it. I don’t know how he did it, but I was not charged. Did he pay the 3% himself?
