    LIVING FAIRLY

    A false balance is abomination to the LORD but a just weight is his delight
    PROVERBS 11:1

    In times long gone, traders would sell grain by the measure of weight to those who would come to them. Many would place stones in the bottom of the bags in order to increase the weight. By the time their ploy was discovered, the sellers were long gone. Many traders made their fortunes by cheating unsuspecting buyers. This practice was widespread, and nothing was done to protect the innocent.

    It is a terrible feeling to be cheated and know that we are helpless to fight it. We hate being on the receiving end of other people's selfishness and cruelty. We long for some way to even the score. Thankfully, God has promised that the score will indeed be settled. Those who live by deception will find themselves outside of the grace of God. No one who makes his living by the blood, sweat and tears of others can be numbered among the children of God. He has turned his back on the ways of the Lord, and so he will pay the penalty. It is comforting to know that God sees all things, and that He will sit in judgement in the last days. Remain steadfast in the Lord, and He will grant you His favor.

    Dear Heavenly Father, O Lord, soften our hearts against those who take advantage of us. Guide our dealings that we never take advantage of another one of Your children. Let our lives be one of fairness and honesty. Amen and Amen.

    Many Blessings to all, Judy
