Proverbs 29 – Justice For All?

“By justice a king gives a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down.”

Proverbs‬ ‭29:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

For me this seems like a verse that can easily translate into our life. A Leader (king) who actually enforces the laws, supporting justice: all of that gives the area over which they lead – consistency, stability.

But that area of influence: be it a country, organization, neighborhood or family can be broken down by a leader who flexes their authority to gain wealth through bribery. (Look the other way…)

It you see a country, company or community that lacks stability, you might want to consider the leader’s passion for justice or the lack there of.
