Proverbs 11:1

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight. NASB

In the verses that follow in Chapter 11 we see a contrast between the behavior of the righteous man governed by God and the ungodly man governed by his desires and devices. We need to be careful here. It is easy to think that if our righteous acts were put on a balance and compared to our unrighteous acts we should get a free pass from God because, by our measure, we are a pretty good person especially compared to other people. That is what Job was trying to do in Job 31:6

There are those who are willing to take advantage of others for their personal gain as is described in Ezekiel 45:9&10. God had something to say about that. God also had something to say to those in power like Belshazzar king of Babylon in Daniel 5:25-28. In fact, God wrote it on the wall.

When we try to tip the scales in our favor according to our weights using a false balance we will be found wanting. God is concerned about how we treat others in this world for that is our Christian witness. In that case, our actions might weigh more than our words. Have just weights
