Bullets From The Bible 2-12-18

    Proverbs 20:23 says, “Diverse weights are an abomination to the LORD, And dishonest scales are not good.”

    Honesty is a principle that is taught throughout the Bible. In this verse it is applied back to business. Using different weights or measures to cheat people in business is not right and should not be done. Businesses are typically geared around making the customer feel like they have received more than they really have. Inflating a product to appear better or bigger is a typical practice. As Christians we must be honest in every aspect of our business dealings as well as every aspect of life. As consumers we should seek to support businesses that practice honesty and morals in their business dealings.

  • @dddoo7 This topic is near and dear to my heart.

    I am ever increasingly disgusted by the lengths companies will go to sell product. Yet it is the consumer constantly pinching every manufacturer and dealer for the "best price" which causes and rewards such behavior.

  • Very true. Most times the cheapest company is not the honest one.

  • Then again you have the case for generic drugs or buying the same exact drugs from Canada.

    Remember the case for Epee pens (not sure spelling) the emergency shot kit for severe allergic reactions, public outrage got that price down.

    In certain industries, prices vary widely sometimes coincidentally with quality, but sometimes not.
