“…In nearly 78 years… I can assure you… I’ve been EXPOSED to just about every “compromise opportunity”.. in the book…”

STAND YOUR GROUND:  There is an art to knowing …when to HOLD, and when to CLOSE.

Remember this….there will come a time when you MUST stand your ground with the boss, or front office, family, friend, peer, or …even you minister.  FOR some…  you will be subjected to compromising your beliefs; your integrity; or your moral standards….so be prepared.

You must know what to do early on, so that when that time comes (and it will), you will be prepared to walk away…turn your back on whatever the circumstances; at whatever the risk.  There will always be another opportunity.  Be strong.  Be diligent.  Be prepared.  Be honest to yourself.

I’m not talking about comprise… such that you might do something that is outside of the scope of the project, deal, or enterprise… like going over budget.  I’m talking about something more serious… like compromising the law, immorality, your integrity, or your core beliefs.  Or even, turning your back on God.

I’ve been at this game of life, now for… nearly 78 years, and I can assure you… I’ve been EXPOSED to just about every “compromise opportunity… in the book.  These types of compromises are not the kind you have to thing about.  They are black and white decisions.  These are right and wrong issues.  The correct answer, or decision… is always staring you… immediately… in the face.  It is as clear as the nose on your face. Time to… RUN baby …run. None of us needs a lesson in right and wrong.

If you have to think TWICE …then you need to get out of Dodge.  Find another job.  Bite the bullet.  and, if necessary, then…resign… IMMEDIATELY.

There are those who think the world is not held responsible for misinterpreting God’s Word.  The Bible says otherwise… as told to us in Genesis 6:5-6, 13 –  As told in the story of Noah.  Then… the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually and He was grieved in His heart, And God said to Noah… “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
