A woman who was preparing to entertain guests, went to a small grocery store to buy food. She stopped at the meat counter and asked the butcher for a large chicken. He reached down into the cold storage compartment, grabbed the last chicken he had, and placed it on the scale. 

“This one weighs four pounds, ma’am,” he said. “I’m not sure that will be enough,”  the woman replied. “Don’t you have a bigger one?” 

The butcher put the chicken back into the compartment, pretended to search through the melting ice for another one, and then brought out the same bird, discreetly applying some finger pressure to the scale. 

“Ah,” he said with a smile, “this one weighs six pounds.” “I’m just not sure,” the woman said with a frown. “I’ll tell you what, wrap them both up for me!”

This is what is happening again and again in so many areas of our country and our daily life – people are putting finger pressure on the scale.  It’s more than time for those who care about our country, who care about right, wrong, honesty, character and integrity to come forward and say: “Wrap them both up for me.” 

If YOU have a sense of morality, this is the time to stand up and take a stand for what is right. Now is the time for YOU to find out what is right and take a stand for the truth, no matter what!

OUR JOB IS NOT TO FIX EVERYONE, BUT TO LOVE THEM, SUPPORT THEM AND GIVE THEM THE GRACE OF GOD TO GROW!
