My husband Gary and I at the time owned several sign companies in Central Florida and one day I walked out into the shop and saw the men working in the sheet metal department, bending metal and putting together the frames for the electrical signs we built. They used a rivet gun with silver rivets that we would buy by the pound. They weren’t cheap. I noticed they would grab a handful putting them in their work aprons and as they did this, some would fall out on the ground.
We also had bought some nice rubber mats for the concrete floors and by the end of the day, when it was time to clean up the shop, I would walk out and noticed that instead of sweeping up the rivets that had fallen to the ground and putting them back in the box to be used later, they would either wind up in the trash or under the rug!
It didn’t take me and my calculating mind to go out, gather the rivets out of the trash, weigh them and figure out approximately $5.00 per day, 5 to 6 days a week were getting thrown out… Well, the best I can say is I told my husband and we figured out a way to stop this from happening! Go figure!
We also looked at the rubber mats and noticed that the rivets that were swept under the rug were eating into the rubber mats, and destroying those pretty quickly.
Of course we both realized sometimes some loss was bound to happen in this type of industry, but we explained to our employees that this was effecting our bottom line, and ultimately theirs in the way of bonus checks and wage increases. We kept an open door policy, in order to keep a just balance between those employees God had entrusted to us.
Honest scales and balances belong to the LORD; all the weights in the bag are of his making. Proverbs 16:11
The Lord showed me that as an employer it was my job and duty to correct my employees with dignity and honor, and not to deal harshly with them, but as God himself has dealt with me when I have been wasteful, thoughtful and remiss in my duties as his daughter.
He also showed me that no one gets away with anything…. and all the weights in the bag are of his making. Our lives, our vocations, our ministries, even our private and personal lives will be accountable to God and he has established this principle in the earth. We don’t have to worry when companies, individuals, etc. are being thoughtless, or even doing something that is completely dishonest as the article below describes.

Another nice catch NYBob ! – “Germans arrested Victoria Nuland’s assistant, who in addition, is an employee of Vanguard Corporation, with almost a billion of high quality fake dollars, printed by Vanguard Corporation. This employee (is a member of the State Department), and now, during his interrogations, he “put under bus” Vanguard Corporation with all of its companies and “putting under bus” Nuland, McCain, Kerry, Brennan and others…”
The fallout from this corruption is immeasurable. Wonder if they will be able to sweep it under the rug as well.
