Book: Proverbs 11
“The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights.”
Imagine what life would be like if God did not detest or hate dishonest scales. We would be in trouble. Societies would not be able to survive since trust would not exist. You would pay for something and only get part of it. No one would be trustworthy and if God was not trustworthy either there would be no hope for any of us.
A student, business person, or worker who is dishonest is quickly identified and wears that label for a long time. The reverse is true as well. My wife works at a local grocery store that the parent company, Overwaitea, at one time was known for giving more than the customer paid for. They have existed for over a hundred years and you can guess what the product was that they gave extra of!
There are times when giving “accurate weight” is hard work and seems like we could get away with less be it the time clock at work, product sold, or even quality of service but God “DELIGHTS” when we honor Him in this way.
Examine your life and see that you are delighting the Lord through “accurate weights”!
