Lower the Amount
By Rick Boxx

Fuld & Co., a firm that collects competitive information for its clients, discovered in a study of several industries that each had different ethical boundaries when it came to collecting competitive information.
According to the Wall Street Journal, author Larry Kahaner’s analysis of this study stated, “What I’ve found is that the more money that’s involved, the less squeamish people become.”
Hebrews 13:5 teaches, “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’”
As I’ve counseled businesses over the years, I also have realized the importance of the dollar amount. If you’re trying to make tough ethical decisions, try lowering the amount to $10. Would you still make the same decision?
