Often times we are faced with a situation which sounds too good to be true. We all know you get what you pay for, but what about when someone offers you a deal that on the outside looks good?
Is it in your best interest or is there a different angle to view it in?
Abraham, before his name was amended so here is called Abram, recognizes that a bounty coming his way may not go down so well in history. He would rather not have his name besmirched with the King of Sodom, and knowing what happened to Sodom, can you be surprised? Sodom's reputation was well known and evidently what happened in Sodom did not stay in Sodom.
Do not be in a hurry for any deal that comes to you without thinking it over pretty well. You may not have the stature of Abraham,but you certainly don't want to have the notoriety of Sodom associated with you and your teams.

likely these days 100's of ways. In light of this idea, I am writing some posts
that bring business sense to what we can learn on a weekly basis. Enjoy,
