Parable and Conscience Meditation December 30

Poverty  December 30

The Region is, in principal, self-financed (Congolese Regional Statutes, 9.1).

In this group of three men, two ended up with promotions and one got fired.  It all started with the brief departure of the boss.  He left the responsibility for the development of his business with these three, giving each control of a part of his wealth according to each one’s ability.  Two of the men, each on his own, began to look for opportunities, do studies, make business decisions.  The third, a man less clever, lazy and fearful, shut himself up in his office—except for one time to go hide the money he was given.  When the boss returned, there was a reckoning.  The two creative employees who, on their own initiatives, increased the wealth they were given, assured themselves of their place in the company.  The third lost the little that he had, as well as the respect of everybody else.  The future of an enterprise, even religious, doesn’t happen with crossed arms, neither of the boss nor of the employees.

The rat that wants a good hole uses its fingernails.  (Somba)
