Dishonest scales are an abomination to the LORD, but a just weight is His delight.
God is a God of truth and honesty, and He cares about truth in all aspects of life. "A false balance is here put for all manner of unjust and fraudulent practices in dealing with any person, which are all an abomination to the Lord" (Matthew Henry's Commentary, comment on Proverbs 11:1).
For more about truth and honesty, see "Ninth Commandment: You Shall Not Bear False Witness."

1 Corinthians 3:1-7
Dear Father, growth-giving God,Help me to be a genuinely spiritual person in Christ. Let me grow beyond having to be fed like a baby on soft food and milk. May I strive for maturity so I will be able to digest solid food.Keep me from being jealous and full of strife, from acting as mere human beings act - carnal!Help me to understand the equality of all your servants, and not to put one above another, or to claim special discipleship to any!Help me to see that it is not a question of who waters and who plants, for it is only you, God, who gives the increase.In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Verse of the Day for Wednesday March 11th, 2015:
Thoughts on Today's Verse....
Sometimes there are no immediate answers. We have prayed and cried and tried and gone sleepless and mourned and shouted. Still there are no answers. The days roll by in an agonizing parade of pain. Still there are no answers we can identify. What do we do? We go to the Psalms. We let them raise up our heart's cry. We are honest with the God of the entire universe and yet we can still anticipate mercy from him. We are convinced that in our troubles, he will not only hear us, but he will also care about what is happening in our lives.
Almighty God, the only true Healer of disease and Mender of broken hearts, please hear the cry today of those I love who are in such desperate situations. May your will be done in every one of their lives with tenderness, grace, and a sense of your presence. And Lord, please be near me, and help me see your answer to my prayers. Forever yours in the name of Jesus. Amen.
