The Jilted Mistress
by Rick Boxx
February 3, 2010
Many believe our personal activities should have no bearing on our work life. Charles Phillips, co-president of Oracle Corp., likely realizes the folly of that belief now. According to The Kansas City Star, his jilted mistress of 8 ½ years got revenge by plastering billboards of them together in three major cities, including in Times Square.
Whether Mr. Phillips realizes it or not, many who do business with Oracle, and value trust, may now question his integrity since he deceived his own wife for over 8 years.
Proverbs 10:9 teaches, "The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out."
The next time you're faced with sexual temptation imagine your picture and your sin on a billboard in Times Square.
