Financially Struggling Employee Is Stealing. What Do I Do?

In this episode Dr. Betters answers the question, "I own my own business and employ just over 20 people. I recently had a situation where I found out one of my employees was stealing from me. After being confronted and shown the evidence they eventually admitted to it but begged for my mercy as they were experiencing hardship in their personal life and claimed they were desperate to make ends meet. I could have easily reported this crime to the police but felt as though God was telling me to show this person mercy and instead I decided to show them grace and made other arrangements to avoid legal action. Unfortunately, they have not held up their end of the deal. Do I just let it go? Where is the line between holding people accountable for their actions and letting God sort it out according to His plan and purpose?"
