The story of the death of Sarah in Genesis 23 is amazing in its revelation of the man, Abraham. Though by his own admission, a stranger and alien in the land, because of his lifestyle he is seen as "a mighty prince."
When asking for a place to bury his wife, he offers full price for a tomb, yet because of the community's respect for him, he is offered the plot of land and cave for free. Yet, he resists their multiple attempts at benevolence, instead it seems, he repeatedly offers full price, eventually settling for their asking price.
Think about the contrast in terms of today's concept of negotiation, which affords little thought from either party to honor character or offer thanksgiving for a life well lived.
Think about a world where the goal is other than an attempt to leverage the moment for highest gain.
