Last week, Leo Dutton did not earn his pay. His job was just too easy.
According to the Associated Press, Dutton, a county sheriff, received a text message from a teen-age boy asking this question, "Hey Dawg, do you have a $20 I can buy right now?"
When Dutton realized this was an actual request for drugs, he texted back with a proposed meeting time and place. Once there, he confronted the young texter who had brought along a friend by flashing them his badge. Accordingly, the faces of both young men turned white, and they, shall we say, became very unsteady on their feet.
Had the boys listened to some 2000-year-old words from the Apostle Paul, they might have been spared the indignity:
Gal 6:7--Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
