Ring of Gyges

Given the power of invisibility, what would be the first thing that you would do? The second? We were challenged yesterday with the parable of the two servants, which shows us that what we do when no one is around, reveals what our hearts are truly like.
Regarding the invisibility thing, I think that we need to recognize that it is impossible for us to ever be in a situation where we are free from morals, accountability, responsibility and consequences. Although our "Master" isn't visibly with us, he will return, and will call us to account for all of our actions. That's probably the main point, not to focus on why we think of immoral things when challenged with the question of invisibilty, but for us to remember that we're not invisible, and the we do all serve a master.
