“When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.” – Proverbs 2:10-11
Bro. Montague locked up around 3:00 on Saturday. After making sure everything was in place and the three computers were stacked in the delivery truck, he made a quick phone call to Richard, his boss.
“Richard, I just locked up. I’m going to grab me a bite to eat before I make the deliveries.”
“Fine with me, brother. Don’t forget to stop by after you make the deliveries. I’ll have something for you.”
“I will,” said Bro. Montague. If he hurried, he could make it home early and spend some time with his family. Swinging by Captain D’s, he ordered a three-piece meal deal with fried okra and corn on the cob. He parked in the parking lot to eat his meal. He only ate inside restaurants if he had his family with him.
He thought about the situation he was in. He knew it was not good especially since he professed to be a Christian. He was devastated after losing his last job because some woman who could not control her emotions lied on him. He could not bear the thought of not being able to provide for his family and grabbed the first thing that came along in the computer field—six months later—only to find out that he was delivering drugs and not just computers. Richard had told him that as long as he kept it quiet he would be all right. How could life give him such a bad hand when he had been a faithful and honest worker?
Mr. Harrington the elder, CEO of Harrington Technologies, had summoned him to the office. This was the second time he was in the presence of Mr. Harrington. The first time was at a meeting discussing the new computer program that they were producing. Mr. Harrington was a no nonsense, get-to-the-point CEO. He always had a stern look on his face.
“Mr. Montague, I think you know why I called you to my office,” Mr. Harrington said.
Mr. Montague looked at his immediate boss, Mr. Calvin, with a quizzical look, who looked just as surprised as he did. Mr. Harrington continued. “Let me refresh your memory which you seem to have lost, Mr. Montague. My daughter told me you not only made several passes at her, but you actually backed her in a corner in the lunch room on one of your so-called breaks. She says you have been disrespecting her for a while now.”
“Say what!” Mr. Montague said.
“Don’t look at me like that. I don’t know my daughter to be a liar so I have to go by her record,” Mr. Harrington continued.
“Mr. Harrington, I’m a happily married man. I have been married for twenty-two years now to the same woman. I have no interest in your daughter whatsoever. In fact, she is the one who is always trying to talk with me. To be honest, I try to avoid her because of what I have heard about her.”
“And just what have you heard about her,” asked Mr. Harrington sternly.
“I’d rather not say, Sir.”
“You answer me when I ask you a question, Mister!” Mr. Harrington said. He was used to having things go his way.
“If you insist, Sir. I’ve been told to stay away from your daughter because she is fast.”
“What do you mean by ‘fast’?” Mr. Harrington, a rich white man, was not familiar with the terminologies of the black community.
“I’d rather not say, but since you asked, fast means she is loose and runs after men.”
“What!” Mr. Harrington slammed his fist on the table as he rose slowly from his leather chair. “Who told you this garbage?”
“I’d rather not say. But the truth of the matter is, she came into the coffee room immediately after I had gone in to get a coke from the machine. She walked up behind me and stood so close I could not move without touching her.”
“Stop this nonsense. My daughter is not like that!” Mr. Harrington moved from behind his desk.
Mr. Calvin placed a hand on Mr. Montague’s shoulder, with some pressure as an indication for him to stop while he was ahead. But Mr. Montague ignoring him continued to speak.
“Yes, Sir. She was so close to me I could not get away from her. She grabbed my upper arm saying she had seen me around and would like to get my number…”
“I will not tolerate you speaking such slander against my daughter!”
“Mr. Harrington, I have a reputation to uphold and I’m not going to let your daughter or any woman tear me down and bring shame to my name. And I am telling you all this at the risk of losing my job. I literally had to tear myself away from your daughter’s grasp. She slipped and I don’t know what happened to her because I left the coffee room as quickly as I could.”
“You are right, Mr. Montague. As of today, you do not have a job. John, see him to the exit. And do not let me see you in this place ever again!”
“I can see myself to the door.” Mr. Montague exited the room and headed in the direction of his office followed by Mr. Calvin.
“Man, what got into you? You normally keep your cool.”
“John, I can’t sit back and have this crazy white girl lie on me like that. She is spoiled rotten and used to having her own way. She has her father wrapped around her finger. She has you men on pins and needles; too afraid to say anything to her lest you rub her the wrong way. My reputation and my relationship with my wife and daughter is not worth losing over some lying woman, just to hold on to a job.”
“Brother, my hat goes off to you for taking a stand.” After a moment’s silence John continued. “What are you going to do? You’ve been with us for over twenty-five years.”
“I’ll think of something. Right now I have to think of how to break the news to my wife. She’s already aware of Harrington’s daughter coming on to me. The computer field is wide open. Just put in a good word for me when anyone calls.”
“I sure will. Man, I hate to see you go. We’ve had a lot of good times here. Give me a call if you need anything.”
“Thanks, John. You’re a good manager, and most importantly, a good friend. I need for you to pray for me and my family right now.”

Thank you for joining us for this episode of Whyte House Family stories. You may purchase a copy of this novel and any other Christian fiction books read on this podcast from Amazon.com.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

May God bless you until next time.
