“The Lord detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favour with him” – Proverbs 11:1 (NIV)
All butchers have weighing scales. Once you put in an order your portion is weighed according to scale and then you get your part. Off you you go to home assured of your purchase. But just imagine when you get home only to discover that actually the scales were deceptive and you got far less of what you thought. Wouldn’t you get mad!
Deceit has become quite common these days. Many have bought food items from
a roadside seller only to discover they bought air. There are gas stations that thrive on selling “air” since the fuel meter has been adjusted.
Deceit is an old human failing but can be redeemed by Christ. He is the one who can change lives. If you are in the habit of being deceitful surrender this habit to the Lord.
Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray that I am honest in all my dealings with others as you have commanded us!
