A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but a just weight is his delight.—Proverbs 11:1
We long for justice. Want proof? Pay attention when someone:
- Cuts you off in traffic.
- Takes credit for something you did.
- Yells at you for circumstantial issues out of your control.
- Disregards the agreed-upon rules.
In these moments, a justice trigger alerts each of us. But these moments of injustice are not only irritating, but they're also infuriating when they stem from a false balance—which indicates an intent to deceive.
On the other hand, a just weight is lifegiving to humanity and delightful to God.—which indicates an intent to not deceive.
DO THIS: Instead of unfairly weighing the balances of justice in your favor determine to be truthful and bring attention to justice which is the delight of God.
PRAY THIS: God, may I be justice in all I think, say, and do today.
