Management is said to be "lonely. At the same time, they are also exposed to temptations that come with having a certain amount of authority. The Bible, the world's bestseller, describes a scene in which Jesus Christ meets Satan's challenge in the wilderness.


The three temptations from Satan can be said to appeal to universal human desires. Specifically, they are the following desires.




1) Material desire 

  Satan asked Jesus to turn stones into bread. This appeals to the basic human desire of hunger. 


2) Desire for safety and security

  Satan asked Jesus to jump off the top of the Temple to confirm God's protection. This is a desire to escape danger and insecurity by relying on God. and insecurity.


3) Desire for power and prestige

1) Have faith

  It is important to have faith in your vision and mission and not give in to various temptations and difficulties.


2) Observe moderation

3) Maintain modesty

  We should not be attached to our status or prestige, but should maintain humility and aim to contribute to society and people.
