Leviticus 19:35-37

Lev 19:35 “You will do no wrong in judgement, in measures of length or weight or quantity.
Lev 19:36 You will have ethical balances, ethical weights, an ethical ephah, and an ethical hin: I am Yahveh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.
Lev 19:37 And you will observe all my prescriptions and all my rules, and do them: I am Yahveh.”

fairness and faith

The equality that the covenant demanded was more than just equal rights for the marginalised. It extended to fair trade practises, so that everyone was treated fairly, and no one was taken advantage of. Everyone was to be treated the same way that anyone wanted to be treated. Since fairness was reciprocal, opportunity was extended to everyone. That meant that everyone could hope and dream of a better life. A nation like that reflects the character and purpose of God.

LORD, give us the courage to always be fair with everyone.
