Nothing saves like writing something down, on paper.
With the advent of technology, the pads, the laptops, we are wont to save every document, correspondence, or idea in soft copy. That can have its on downside.
I recently nearly lost all the info in my memory card probably because I connected the phone to an infected pc. But that is not even the point.
Two days back, there was a high demand for my book, Do Something! and so I had to rush to the nearest store where I have my book on display – Transcorp Hilton Bookstore to be precise, to withdraw some copies. At the bookstore, I told the sales girl that I would replace the copies the next day, unfailingly, adding that there was absolutely no need for her to record the withdrawal in the stock card seeing that in a few hours I would replace them.
The sales girl however insisted that she must record it on the stock card, peradventure I didn’t do as promised. And so she did.
The next day, as usual, I took copies in the car for to return the books, but business had the better part of my day and there was no time to return the books.
It’s been two days now, and I have had time to withdraw the books. What if she hadn’t documented the withdrawal?
It certainly would have been irresponsible of her to bank on my word alone.
Even God was very wise as to have documented his Word!
