In our day and age, almost anything can be disguised with a promise of success. We would therefore be wise to examine the slogans we hear before their lies begin to influence the decisions we make. For example is it right to say that "If I think, act, and look successful, I will become successful"? Is it true that becoming the president of the company is the ultimate business objective, or that there is nothing of real value in being poor? What about practices such as working late or striving to eliminate competition? While these may appear logical at first, one who learns to understand cause and effect will realize that "there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12). This session, once again rich in personal testimonies from those with many years of experience, could save the careful listener a great deal of sorrow.
