Proverbs 24:23 – Remain impartial

The wise have also said these things: It is wrong for judges to be prejudiced.

(Pro 24:23 GNB)

If you compare translations on this one the message behind the verse is simple; truth is true regardless of where it comes from. We must not be prejudiced with respect to persons. Don’t just trust some people automatically and distrust others with equal ease. Rather, we need to consider carefully what claims people are making and weigh the claims on their own merits. We must stick to the same standards as judges when we are discussing the really big issues of life.
