From time to time a situation that could compromise a business owner or leader’s moral or ethical compass may become a temptation. These challenges come to all of us. The question is how do we deal with it?
We see an example from scripture when the Pharisees “plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth and kill Him. But they were saying, ‘Not during the festival, otherwise a riot might occur among the people.’” (Matthew 26:”4-5, NIV) If the Pharisees had wanted to be honest and straightforward, they could have taken the Lord into custody any time He was in the temple. After all, the temple guards enforced the priests’ will. But the scripture tells us they wanted to do this in secret.
