Peter’s company is thriving, godly, and ethical. His board members often disagree on some issues, and consequently have heated discussions. They have no-holds-barred debates, but hurt feelings are rare, and seldom do their deliberations result in ties or stalemates. How can this be in a fallen world?
Trust is the answer. The board members trust that each has become governed by one motivation: to honor God in everything. Notice I said “has become.” Becoming is different than behaving. Trust results from a transformed heart, not from external rote comportment.
