According to the Public Center for Integrity, recently indicted race car driver Scott Tucker had operated a payday lending business by using loopholes in the law. Tucker sold his business to Indian tribes and operated as their so-called “employee,” hiding behind their sovereign nation status.

In fact, the Indian tribes only received 1% of the revenue, while Tucker received billions, allegedly charging illegally high interest rates up to 700%!

Jesus accused the Pharisees of following the “letter of the law,” but not the intent in Luke 11:42, “But woe to you Pharisees! For you pay tithe of mint and rue and every kind of garden herb, and yet disregard justice and the love of God.”

If you desire your team to obey the intent of your rules, promote your values more than your rules.
