Two competing organizations offer Integrity Resource Center a finder’s fee for any referrals we send their way. The challenge is one of these organizations is willing to pay double what their competitor pays.

One of the biggest challenges to making wise ethical decisions is the desire to please myself. When I have to make a choice, and one of the choices is potential gain for me, suddenly my choices are clouded.

James 3:16 teaches, “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”
