“For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.”
~ King Solomon < The Book of Ecclesiastes (in the Old Testament of the Bible), chapter 1, verse 18 >
Please consider the following:
How many of you have a particularly disturbing story of a certain event that has happened in your personal industry? I’m talking about your career. I’m sure you have an anecdote or two about what really goes on“behind closed doors“.
I’m sure there are issues relating to cooking the books, lying to investors, sexual liaisons, inter-industry spying and the outright cheating of consumers. I’m sure there are stories of incredible waste and bilking the public.
I’m sure you have at least one story that if the general public knew, it would turn your place of business or industry upside down.
I am certain you have many stories.
Please, think about one of those stories right now…
Do you have one in your mind?
With the story in your mind right now, would not gossip sites have a banner of a day?
I will now put you at ease and let you know that it isn’t surprising, everyone in every business and industry has a story.
And now I will put you in horror and notify you that YES, EVERYONE HAS A STORY.
Everyone you know has inside information concerning their industry (or actual place of work) that would make you and I shudder to consider it.
So there is the world that is projected to us by the genius in the marketing department to keep everyone at ease.
And there is the story behind the curtain.
The story of how we truly feel about one another…how cash profits trump human decency and how we would kill our brother to possess our brother’s land.
The enemy of our souls is brilliant and we in turn are masters at lying to ourselves.
But don’t think about it. I’m sure there is something good on TV tonight…
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” ~ Jesus Christ < The Book of Revelation, chapter 22, verse 12 >

Here is some encouragement:
“In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
