As people of God, we don’t have to negotiate that way. We should play fair. We should suggest reasonable terms in our work and dealings with people.
This is not “The Art of the Deal”! Jesus has expectations for us and challenges to be fair from the start. This is about what love looks like, not who wins.
God promises we will be blessed if that is our approach.
“Curses on those who drive a hard bargain! Blessings on all who play fair and square!”
