There once was a cruel man who paid his employees handsomely and almost everyone in town worked for him, or wanted to in spite of his demeanor. Those that did had new homes, fancy new cars, lavish vacations, and anything their hearts desired. However, they were unaware the man was a counterfeiter.
One day, the authorities arrested the man, his property was confiscated and all his assets frozen. Next they arrested the employees charging them as criminal accomplices. They lost everything including their freedom as all were sentenced to prison!
Those who did not work for the man had suffered long and hard being tempted daily by what the others had. Everyone else seemed to have better lives. They however, were impoverished in comparison and sometimes envied the employees, but now they were overjoyed and found themselves far better off.
What if you one of the cruel man’s employees? How would you feel?
