Good in the World
Last month I lost my brand new iPhone. I'd had it for 32 days. After searching high and low for the phone, I finally admitted it was gone. I was sure some punk kid found my phone and placed it on Craig's List for a quick buck. In fact, even AT&T informed me it was gone forever. I was beyond bum. I just couldn't understand why someone wouldn't return my phone. Why steal a phone when everyone has iPhones? It just didn't make sense to me.
Two weeks ago I received a phone call from a farmer that had found my iPhone. He found it in a ditch while mowing. The miracle wasn't that my phone still worked. No, to me the miracle was the farmer had made an effort to return my phone. He didn't keep the phone. He didn't try to sale it on Craig's List. He did the right thing. He returned it to the owner.
What a great reminder that there is still good in the world.
