“You are to appoint judges and officers for all your gates [ in the cities] Adonai your God is giving you, tribe by tribe; and they are to judge the people with righteous judgement.”
Deuteronomy 16:18 CJB
We are all required to be fair. We shouldn’t have a set of rules for ourselves and a different set of rules for others! We need to be fair!
“You are not to distort justice or show favoritism, and you are not to accept a bribe, for a gift blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of even the upright.”
Deuteronomy 16:19 CJB
One of the biggest problems we see in the Church today is there is one set of rules for leaders and a different set of rules for the people! Just like in politics, the Church has become no different than the world!
“”Justice, only justice you must pursue; so that you will live and inherit the land Adonai your God is giving you.”
Deuteronomy 16:20 CJB
Today, just because leaders in the world and in the church are being unrighteous, doesn’t mean we believers have to! So let’s be upright, be careful how we judge, be fair and be godly when we act!
Have a blessed day in Him!
