Story – Silver shoe kid.

I worked for years in a department store.

There was this kid that worked in the China Department.

A place of high value products.

This kid was offered a much better position – turned it down!

Why? Because he walk out each day with a set of silverware I each shoe.

Big feet!

Later on in life he did other petty theft.

Cat burglar – during storms.

Always in the paper.

Finally got caught in credit card fraud.

He claimed fate - “circumstances just spun out of control”

Was it fate or his own sin?
