Kathy and I watched “The Founder,” which detailed how Ray Kroc cheated and deceived the McDonald brothers multiple times. Eventually, Kroc pressured the McDonald brothers to sell all of McDonald’s rights for over $2 million plus 1% of future royalties.
At the closing, however, the royalties had been written out of the contract. In a gutsy move Ray Kroc sticks out his hand asking the McDonald brothers to shake on his promise to pay them the royalties personally.
Based on the past, you could tell that they knew they would never receive any royalties. Ray Kroc stiffed them of over $100 million.
Proverbs 26:24 teaches, “Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbor deceit.”
Beware of those who make promises you doubt they intend to keep.
