  • Integrity and Innocence

    by Garth Wehrfritz-Hanson
    Four boys found $13,000 in a brown paper bag on a New York street. Three of the boys wanted to divide the money and keep it. The fourth one persuaded them that the honest thing to do was to inform the police. The police took the money, but the boys’ action was widely publicized. In no time at all, a dozen claimants showed up to state that the money was theirs. It’s amazing how many people lose $13,000 in a brown paper bag! After a period of time had elapsed, the case was brought before the court and the boys were called in.

They are downcast, not defiant. They are weary (insofar as we can see them at all) not energetic. The spring has gone out of his step and in the springtime when the kings go out to make war, he stays back in Jerusalem now. Battles are for younger folks, not him anymore. That confident and perhaps cocky young boy who used to slay bears and lions and giants and who used to be really good at outfoxing old King Saul . . . he’s just a memory...
