Follow The Money
Proverbs 17:23 (KJV) A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
The love of money and power subvert many deals at work in this world. This kind of corruption is present in underhanded politics, the backroom of our judicial system, and commonly found at work in boardrooms and business deals.
This verse above refers to buying off a judge with a bribe. To find a surreptitious deal, when all is hush-hush, investigators in such a matter must follow the trail of money. Sadly, this kind of corruption can and does occur in this world, and more often than is uncovered or the common man is made aware.
While the love of money makes the world’s system go around, Heaven’s currency is something far better!
Aren’t you glad that one judge will not accept a payoff in return for receiving a plea of innocence or goodness from any soul? Jesus Christ is that one judge. Jesus Christ is not coerced into accepting any payoff for no amount of money can purchase His judgment. His mercy and grace are impartial, not treating any one group or race above any other in His verdict.
