Russ, a friend of mine, shared with me that on several occasions he has done business with a well-known television personality whose reputation is questionable at best. Russ has learned through these experiences that building accountability into contracts with this person is crucial.
Russ has seen so many people harmed in their business deals with this famous personality that he requires cash up front and ironclad legal agreements before he will move forward.
In Matthew 10:16 Jesus told His disciples, “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.”
Avoiding business deals with people of questionable character should be our preference, but in those occasions when we’re forced to work with unscrupulous characters, we need to be wise or shrewd.
