Spread the love

I am 28 years old, a good mother and a caring, loving wife. My husband adores me and never saves on my needs. Our family’s income is normal, we are not poor.

One evening I went to the store, took a piece of gum at the cash register and put it in my coat pocket. After paying for the groceries at the cash register, the receptionist came up to me and asked to see the receipt. I showed it to her and she said, “Young lady, you took the gum and didn’t pay for it, where is it?” I started to fight back, saying that I did not take anything, but the administrator said that the camera recorded everything, she called a security guard and told me to give me the chewing gum and pay its cost tenfold, or she will call the police and will draw up a protocol. I paid and they just let me go home.

The woman was very competent and competent, did not make a fuss, did not shame me in the whole store, so customers did not understand anything. God, I’m so worried about this! I haven’t eaten anything for two days, I feel nauseous, and I can’t forgive myself for sinking to this. Why do I need this gum? What did I want to get out of it? People don’t have enough money for bread, and they don’t steal. What am I missing in life?

Now I’m afraid of God’s punishment, I think something bad is bound to happen to me. I learned a good lesson, and one thing I know for sure now is that I will never do it again. I do not know how to calm my conscience. Can you give me a hint?

    Don’t worry 🙂 if you’re so worried, it means you’re very conscientious, you realized you can’t do that, so it’s okay, God will forgive a little thing like that 🙂
