The Three P’s – Part II

A former General Mills executive, Marc Belton, discussed three P’s: Perks, Privilege, and Power in an interview with Dallas Theological Seminary. Today, let’s discuss Privilege.

As leaders rise through the ranks of an organization, their position often affords them more privilege. Maybe it’s more freedom as to how you spend your time, company cars, or invitations to meet with influential leaders. 

These privileges can allow pride to surface, which can set the stage for moral failure. What becomes normal to someone of privilege, may be viewed by others as waste or unnecessary extravagance.

Proverbs 11:2 teaches, “When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with the humble is wisdom.”

Gaining added privilege due to hard work can be admirable, but be careful that pride in your privilege doesn’t bring you dishonor.
