What is truth?
Listening to Jim Cymballa of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, he discussed a recent job advert in a New York port agency. They needed expert electricians in suntag connectors. They got over one hundred and seventy (170) applicants! Experts in suntag connectors.
What’s the big deal about that? It was a survey! There is nothing like suntag connector! They got 170 professional liars! Now the issue is “who is left with the truth?”
Same day, I stumbled on a VIP who just joined a social network. When I saw the personal profile, the academic background and the job experience, I was short of rubbing my eyes! Was I misreading or misremembering!
If you’d agree with me, the easiest thing to do now is to cross examine, judge and sentence the 170+1 characters above. However, I turned to myself, and brought my CV to mind.
What is wrong? What is right?
What is almost right? What is not completely wrong?
That was Tuesday night.
Wednesday morning, I stumbled on an Edinburgh Napier University research work on the stress caused by “many” Facebook friends, which, the researcher agreed, could be impressive! The stress level goes up as your number of friends go up. This Facebook-related anxiety also rises significantly when your parents become your friends!
Why? They know the truth about those things that an average person puts up for the world to see!
This is the difference between character and reputation! Who I am versus Who they think I am!
How would we perform if our truth levels are measured!
