Daily Bible Reading for Thursday, February 22nd:


A scale only compares against standard measurements

A scale only compares against standard measurements

The Lord hates dishonest scales, but he is pleased with honest weights – Proverbs 11:1 NCV

When one takes a measurement of something, she is only comparing the object against another. When we react to our environment, we mentally gauge everything we see, hear and do against some other standard in that exact same way.

Baseball sized hail is dangerous. A baseball sized scoop of ice cream is not quite enough.

When you find yourself justifying a decision you are about to make, do you measure it against the standards of men or of God?
