8 hour’s pay for How much work? Heir Conditioning 019

Yes, the same verses from yesterday, bit with a different unit of measurement. “You shall not have in your house two kinds of measures, a large and a small.” (Deuteronomy 25:14 ESV)
Consider that you have a job selling your time to an employer. Your price is $15 per hour of work. When you sell your hour of work how much money do you expect? I know the math is tough but you expect $15.

How much work should the buyer expect? Right, one hour’s worth. Not 3/4 of an hour. Not 7/8 of an hour. The deal was $15 for one hour’s worth of work. Evidently dishonesty in financial transactions was as much of a problem in bible times as it is today. We call it getting to work exactly on time but needing to get that first cup of coffe and hanging up our coats on the boss’s time, or taking a 40 minute lunch instead of the allotted 30 minutes, or knocking off a half hour early to clean up and get stuff put away when 10 minutes is all it would take. God calls it something else…
“A full and fair weight you shall have, a full and fair measure you shall have, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you. For all who do such things, all who act dishonestly, are an abomination to the LORD your God. (Deuteronomy 25:15-16 ESV)
