Sincerity

Last week in church we heard from an older couple who had just returned from 18 months in Tonga. The wife spent much of her time discussing how little emphasis Tongans place on material goods. She mentioned that before they went to Tonga she had been considering a remodel of her kitchen when they returned, but she was now determined to place less emphasis on such worldly things.

After church someone apparently mistook her coat for their own and left with it. I guess she looked for a while, then ended up leaving a note on the last coat in the building with the message, "You took my coat. Please call me," and her contact info. I just thought it was funny that it happened minutes after she stated her freedom from materialism.
