CBMC Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.
Biblical Business Principle
Last week we focused on Keeping Promises. Do you ever promise more than you can deliver?
This week we will focus on Accurate Weights. How do you assure your customers are getting what they expect they are receiving?
“You must use accurate scales when you weigh out merchandise, and you must use full and honest measures. Yes, use honest weights and measures, so that you will enjoy a long life in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Those who cheat with dishonest weights and measures are detestable to the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 25:13-16 NLT Depending on your product, your scales might be inspected and certified by the government. What about items that are not measured by certified means – do you measure them with a consistent standard? How does the promise of God in this passage apply today? What is the consequence of using dishonest weights?
The LORD despises double standards; he is not pleased by dishonest scales. Proverbs 20:23 NLT Is having special prices for some customers a double standard in the Lord’s eyes? What does this say about charging “what the traffic will bear”?
The LORD demands fairness in every business deal; he sets the standard. Proverbs 16:11 NLT
Bit of Wisdom
The LORD despises double standards of every kind. Proverbs 20:10 NLT
