Sodom and Gomorrah........

'The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.' Genesis 19 V 12/13

You have come to notice that, in every environment you have ever worked, the organisation itself only continues to function because those employed within it who will go above and beyond what is required are just slightly larger in number than those who go to work and perform below the standard required. What also falls under this same umbrella is that those who are in charge of the organisation rely heavily on those people who belong to the former of the two groups.

Take the British Armed Services for example, is is widely known that there are servicemen and women who have failed to meet the standard of fitness required of them. There have been cases in the services where servicemen and women have tried to avoid service by some rather dubious means in a bid to avoid going on deployment, and whilst there are some servicemen and women that are caught and prosecuted there are, you are almost certain, some that go undetected.

What you have also come to believe is that societies all over the world also relies heavily on those who work hard, to offset those who are lazy and those who malinger. The Police have recently taken a huge hit on both their pay and their pensions, as have the Armed Services. What a lovely coincidence it is that these two organisations are prevented from withdrawing their services under law.

What the cynic inside of you believes and is disconcerted by, is that one day this whole 'arrangement' based on the 'good will' of those willing to go above and beyond is going to come crashing down when people realise that they can walk away with the same amount of money and respect if they just went to work and performed just below the standard required.

But what scares the hell out of you, is that one day the hard working, morally efficient driven people of this society will realise that they would be better off, at least in the short term, if they didn't go to work at all. Whilst you do not believe the Bible is the truth, you still can see that if that day comes, and those people get an attack of selfishness, no one will be able to save society from what is coming, because Sodom and Gamorrah will happen again, and you fear that no one will be able to stop it......

Merry Christmas Children.....

'Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD. He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.' Genesis 19 V 27/28.
