AIG and me

Let's see, now. What's everybody so mad at?

They're mad at a company that risked its future on unreliable and ephemeral investments, then, when those investments proved to be worthless, asked for help, and then used some of that help to reward those who made the mistakes in the first place. No wonder it's called Arrogant, Incompetent, and Greedy.

OK. Has such a thing ever happened before? Hmmm. . .

Well, I risked my eternal future on my own accomplishments. They were worthless. I asked for help, and then, when the help came, I patted myself on the back instead of praising God for His redeeming grace. To top it off, I keep trying to re-install myself as CEO, instead of Christ. That seems to be another, even more serious case of Arrogant, Incompetent, and Greedy.

Ouch.

The inspiration for this came mostly from an article in Christianity Today.

Thanks for reading.
