(Proverbs 16:11 KJV) A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are his work.
You may have a different dream but I don’t see myself ever selling produce or running a business weighing recycled aluminum. The ideas here about honest scales would seem to apply to someone else. Not so. The principle is the issue. There are many ways in which I can cheat without going near weights and measures.
How do I determine whether I am justified in returning a product I have bought? Have you ever been tempted to purchase an expensive item, use it the one time you need, and then return it for a full refund? I hear there are some women who do this with dresses. I can picture doing it when I need a specialty tool. What is happening is that the consumer is taking advantage of a retailer who is trying to be fair with his customers. What we don’t like to admit is that this kind of misrepresentation is a form of lying . I hope you understand how angry God gets when we lie.
So? Business ethics are also the responsibility of the customer. It is a matter of eternal significance.
