Words, Words, Words for Us All

Given all the revelations of wrong-doing by public figures and secret service agents and CIA directors in the past few years, I think this particular Chinese proverb might have some good words of advice for anyone in public service...or, in fact, for anyone who is merely breathing in and out on a regular basis.

Can I hear an Amen?


  1. Amen!
    Or as Barretta said: "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime!"

  2. Amen!

    The other way I think of it is - "Would I want my mother to find out?" or "Would I want this on the front page of the newspaper?" This works for all of our actions in life. :-)

  3. Amen!! And from Numbers 32 v23b "and you may be sure that your sin will find you out." I've remembered that from hearing it in a children's story in church as a young girl.

  4. Amen! indeed and in deed.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
