We have an aide during the day since both Loretta and I are on walkers. I gave her a paid afternoon off on Sunday, and that emboldened her to ask for Thursday afternoon off too. I said yes, but she’d forfeit her tip. She took it.
I try to be fair, but I don’t like being taken advantage of. But the words of the Lord are precious: when he says give away your cloak even after you’ve given away your shirt, I take that for a command.
Admittedly I don’t always understand what he means; times have changed. But I do my best. May the Holy Spirit guide me.
