… You do things in a fair, even-handed way (I Corinthians 14:40)
… You treat people with respect (Matthew 7:12)
… You come to a solution that is fair and just (Micah 6:8)
Here’s what may happen:
* You will be surprised at how satisfied people are even if they disagree with the heart of your decision.
* You will discover that disagreeing parties trust and respect you, and might even be willing to support (even enthusiastically) the decisions you made.
