As Kingdom-minded Believers, how do we conduct ourselves in this dark and ultra-competitive environment? By "moving in the opposite spirit": going against the grain of the culture by treating clients–and even competitors–the way we'd want to be treated. In practice, this can seem totally crazy and scary; requiring a deep trust in...
