“Then I commanded your judges at that time, saying, ‘Hear the cases between your brethren, and judge righteously between a man and his brother or the stranger who is with him.’ “
Moses was like a Supreme Court judge. He had the responsibility to judge rightly between people when a complaint was brought before him. He was representing God, and Jeremiah 11:20 tells us, But, O LORD of hosts, You who judge righteously, . . . He could not judge or take sides based upon friendships or positions.
I see this as a problem in the world and, unfortunately, in the ministry. Being in positions of management or leadership, people can become respecters of persons. Be careful of that.
As a senior pastor, I do not care who it is — if it is my own wife, my kids, or any of my friends — it does not matter. I am going to make a righteous judgment for the ministry and for the Lord. Not for my friends and not for my family, because then I will suffer the consequences of God’s judgment.
You have to understand what it says here because Moses was preparing the way, and he was putting people in place who would do the same. God puts each of us in our positions, and He expects us to judge righteously, representing Him.
Justice is truth in action.
