An 8 year old boy’s sincerity in returning the money he found in a shopping mall becomes a great paragon for all of us. Young child, Jaron Johnson was eager to return the hundred dollar bill he found at Walmart on last Friday. He met the right owner, an 86 year old man on Monday itself and returned the money happily!
The bill had fallen out of the wallet of this elderly man named James Grice from Georgetown. He who lives on a fixed income wasn’t able to buy his groceries on that day and went home sadly. Since he lost the money, he didn’t expect to see it again but was humble to submit the matter in God’s hand ..
“When I walked outside of the store I said lord let somebody that really needs that money, find it. When I turn things over to the Lord, I don’t fool with it anymore.” He said.
When the child has found the bill during their shopping at Walmart he gave it to his mom.And on the next day he reminded his mother to call Walmart to see if anyone reported. And the boy was happy to know about its owner and and when the two met on Monday, the old man was happy to bring some gifts for the honest boy.A twenty dollar bill and the promise of fresh tomatoes were addition to his rightful response!
“That child right there, he’s 100 percent to me,” said Grice.
His mother Jodie Johnson, a special education teacher at Tioga Elementary School feels her son’s response as teachable moment and she is very proud for her young child!
“He does the right thing even when no one is looking”! Truly, this child is a role model for everyone!
