Nothing is Hidden
A Chief Financial Officer of a well-known organization in his community called to seek my counsel. He had recently discovered that a past employee had embezzled a significant sum of money.
When the facts were presented to the board, the board was divided on whether to prosecute. The most “influential group” was leaning towards keeping the theft secret to protect the organization’s reputation.
This CFO wanted to know if he should go on record against his board’s secretive approach.
Jesus taught in Luke 8:17, “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.”
Although I understand the desire to save the organization’s reputation, secrets will eventually come to light. Then their reputation is shattered by the cover-up.
