“The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight.” Society says, “Honesty is the best policy.” Why? The world’s answer is, it’s good for business. The honest auto repair shop gets a good reputation and presumably more cars to repair. Biblical wisdom, however, recognizes that God—even more than the customer—is concerned about honesty. Biblical wisdom always factors God into the equation. Society might cut corners when it isn’t apt to hurt business, but the person who fears the Lord strives to be honest all the time. He’s more concerned about pleasing God than about what’s good for his business.” from “The Joy of Fearing God” by Jerry Bridges
