Jonathan’s boss was stealing money out of cash receipts and Jonathan didn’t know how to respond. Jonathan’s boss was the store manager who was considered a hero by the owner!
If Jonathan reported it to the owner, he feared losing his job if he wasn’t believed. If he didn’t report it, however, the company would continue to lose thousands of dollars.
After some discussion, I discovered that one of Jonathan’s peers also had firsthand knowledge of the fraud.
Deuteronomy 19:15 teaches, “One witness is not enough to convict anyone accused of any crime or offense they may have committed. A matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.”
We concluded that Jonathan needed to report the fraud, but ideally he should take the other witness with him.
