Who Do You Really Serve?

Who Do You Really Serve?

Whenever externals are more important to you than your own integrity, then be prepared to serve them the remainder of your life.

~ Epictetus, Discourses II, 2.12

How many people are in the service of the banks?

They have loans or leases for flashy cars to impress people or give a good impression.

Or, they have houses they may not be able to afford because it looks good.

All the while they are in a job where they may have to sell out.

What’s more important, having a flashy car/house, or having unshakable integrity?

I know which one is more important to me.
