Today KING SOLOMON is discussing first about how you should treat others regarding FINANCIAL matters. He says:
“The Lord hates it when people cheat others. But he is delighted when honest people use honest weights.” Proverbs 11:1
You will notice it does not say DISLIKES but HATES! Today we see CHEATING everyday and it has become where most people just don’t attach any importance to it!
So what happens to those who cheat and do wrong according to KING SOLOMON? First he says what happens to those who do right:
“Those who do what is right are guided by their honest lives. But those who aren’t faithful are destroyed by their lies.” Proverbs 11:3
He reinforces this: “The ways of honest people are made straight because they do what is right. But those who do what is wrong are brought down by their own sins.” Proverbs 11:5
