Forbidden “G’s” ….Gold, Glory, and Girls (or… guys). I learned this… and the corresponding results… early in my career. I didn’t know it then… but there was a term for it… today it’s called the FORBIDDEN G’S: Gold, Glory, and Girls (or guys).
Putting aside the moral aspects of these issues… when one get their priorities all mixed up… it will, history tells us… come back to haunt you, sooner than later. I’ve NEVER seen it fail. Doing it (that is…anything)… just for the money, or just for the glory, or heaven forbid…a girl; smells of doom. I wouldn’t cite these two examples …except they are public knowledge.
Remember Jack Welch of GE. If it can happen to the Chairman of GE, then it can happen to anyone… certainly all the juniors are subject to the same penalties as senior management. And then, there was King David. 2 Corinthians 5:10 – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
A more recent example… at the Federal level… is 4-Star General… David Petraeus, then Director of the CIA, and his official biographer… who were involved in some inappropriate behavior, forcing his resignation.
1 Corinthians 10:31 – So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. These examples, for sure… do not offer much up for the glory of God… yet the opposite; as it gives satan the glory. So… beware…satan is ‘everywhere’… going about the business of making SIN a very attractive alternative to SALVATION.
…Blessings…as we seek the Kingdom of God… cjlb… 11/6/2017
