Trust, Friends, Plans and Wisdom
What can a good man do when the foundations have been undermined?
Sometimes when we are trying to do great things it would be better to do them in secret until they are already on a firm footing before revealing our intentions. It has come to my attention that the very people in whom we confide are often, our worst enemies. It is so easy to discourage others that when we let anyone else know about our plans, their immediate response is to discourage us by questioning our ability. Of course I'm not speaking about showing the boss some innovation or other, but personal ambitions revealed to close friends.
I have decided to keep stuff to myself from now on and let it be a surprise to others after the fact. Sometimes it is difficult to find the wise thing to do, but in this case I think wisdom says: "Too many fingers in the pie will spoil it."
Man, people can really make each others lives difficult, but God gives wisdom and it is on Him that we rely.
God bless you all.
Yes you lawyers, it is no better with you! For you load men with intolerable burdens, but will not put a single finger to the load yourselves. You stop those entering the kingdom but you do not enter yourselves, you hypocrites(Luke 11, v46 and 52.)
