I read this article at Joelnews.org and had to reprint it here:
92-year-old Pauline Jacobi reads her Bible everyday. Her strong faith keeps her going in life and may have saved it after she almost became the victim of a parking lot robbery. Jacobi had just finished putting her groceries inside her car at a Dyersburg Wal-Mart when a man jumped into the car through the passenger’s side door. He told Jacobi he had a gun and that he would shoot her if she didn’t give him money.
“I’m not going to give you my money,” Jacobi said. “‘Jesus is in this car and he goes with me everywhere I go.” The robber looked around and tears sprung in his eyes. She told him to ask God for forgiveness and ministered to him for 10 minutes inside her car. “He says, ‘I think I’ll go home and pray tonight,'” Jacobi said. “I says, ‘You don’t have to wait until tonight. You can pray anytime you want to.'”
As tears were rolling down the man’s face, Jacobi voluntarily gave him $10. All the money she had. “When I told him I was going to give him the money, I said, ‘Don’t you go spend it on whiskey either,'” Jacobi said. The man thanked her for the money and kissed her on the cheek. Then he walked away.
