Mercy Not Sacrifice by Dan Parks - Chapter 5

Johnnie on summer break from high school works a day in the Carman Carrier shop with Grandpa John and Mike. He learns how to put together a driveshaft on a truck which leads him to understanding how a life should be put together. Grandpa John finds Johnnie smoking and tells him that he shouldn’t hide who he is or eventually he will hide from himself—as running from yourself tires even the best men.
