Wallowing on Wall Street 
by Rick Boxx
March 30, 2010

Author, Michael Lewis, believes Wall Street bonuses have become an entitlement. On "60 Minutes" he described a time in his twenties when he received over $200,000 in bonuses, and wasn't sure why.

Many on Wall Street seem to receive large payouts regardless of performance. The same banks that drove our country into financial calamity returned to paying huge bonuses in less than a year. It seems they rewarded those who created financial chaos.

The Apostle Peter said in 2 Peter 2:22, "The proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit, and ‘A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.'"

Like Wall Street bankers, we can all rationalize our behavior. Do you have any poor behaviors that need to cease?
