Three cheers for the open door policy! The desire to keep communication lines in tact between staff and management is wise. A happy employee is a productive employee! If the boss rules with an iron fist, he or she only makes workers resentful clock watchers.
I remember my husband once telling about the manager's office where he worked. The desk sat up on a rise, towering over anyone who stood beneath it, in conversation with the manager. The result would likely be feelings of intimidation for most! I can just see Dagwood approaching Mr. Dithers and requesting a raise!
We need not face God under such restrictions or barriers. Though He is high and lifted up; He also lifts us! Hebrews gives us a clear picture of Jesus our high priest. He truly understands our deepest feelings! "For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need,
(Hebrews 4: 15-16 NAS)."
His door is always open to us; enter and bring Him all your concerns. Not only is honesty the best policy; so is the open door!
