When I was a loan officer, a man pulled up in a new Mercedes, was dressed very flashy, and was wearing lots of expensive jewelry. Afterwards, my assistant said, “That man looks very wealthy. Why does he need to borrow money?”
I told her, “Like they say in Texas, he’s all hat and no cattle.”
His Mercedes was about to be repossessed, he was unemployed, and his credit cards were maxed out. His appearance seemed to be more important to him than building truewealth.
Proverbs 12:9 teaches, “Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant than pretend to be somebody and have no food.”
In business, many people who are pitching deals may not be as they seem. Be careful not to be deceived by appearances.
