Store manager tells robber Jesus wouldn’t approve

From Associated Press

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A cell phone store manager in South Florida dissuaded an armed man from robbing the store by telling him Jesus wouldn’t approve. Instead of panicking when the suspect pulled a weapon, Nayara Goncalves started talking with him. He was jobless, and the 20-year-old Christian offered to connect him with friends who could help him find work.

She said she believed the man when he said he attended church and wasn’t a bad person. She told him the answer to his financial problems wasn’t in the cash register.

Then, the clerk nudged him with a little sin of her own. She said the store would hold her responsible for any cash he stole.

Goncalves said, “I just wanted to remind him that he knew better.”

It’s amazing how a little understanding, compassion and … *kind words can go a long way*, isn’t it!?!
