Delightfully Honest

“A false balance is an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is His delight.” (Pr 11:1)

Back in the ancient markets, everything was weighed in the transaction.  The product, such as grain or meat, would be weighed and the silver or gold would also be placed on a scale.  If the scales weren’t level and true or the weights that the merchant used weren’t consistent… somebody got a deal and somebody got taken.  Probably not much of a loss/gain, but it was something and so buyers and sellers were known to skim a little off the top with this method.

Next time you are given the wrong change – give it back and you will bring delight to God.  An extra quarter or a 10% discount inappropriately applied isn’t a big deal to us, but the character associated with it is to God.  Christian integrity brings Him joy.
