A hospital worker in Italy has been accused of skipping work…for 15 years…with full pay! It seems that this “worker” started ditching work. Then his manager retired and his ongoing absence was never noticed by her successor, nor by human resources. This employee continued to draw a paycheck for 15 years, despite never showing up for work!
Sadly, this reminds us of some church members who have neglected attending their congregation for a long time, yet they expect to receive the full benefits of church membership.
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”—Hebrews 10:24-25.
