You never know who is watching your actions.

Several years ago an priest moved to London. He often took the bus from his home to the downtown area. Some weeks after he arrived, he had occasion to ride the same bus. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him twenty pence too much change. As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, 'you better give the twenty pence back. It would be wrong to keep it'.

Then he thought, 'oh forget it, it's only twenty pence. Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company already gets too much fare; they will never miss it. 

Accept it as a gift from Almighty and keep quiet'.

When his stop came, the priest paused momentarily at the door, then he handed the twenty pence back to the driver and said:
"Here, you gave me too much change."

The driver with a smile replied:
"Aren't you the new priest in this area?. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change."

When the priest stepped off the bus, his knees became weak and soft. He had to grab the nearest light pole and held for support, and looked up to the heavens and cried:

"Oh God, I almost sold my religion  for twenty pence!"

Bottom-line: We may never see the impact our actions have on people...  What we need to provide,  is an example for others to see. Be careful and be honest everyday, because you never know who is watching your actions.
