WHAT IF GOD HAD ALLOWED PARTIALITY TOWARD THE POOR?

           It is quite tempting for righteous people to be moved by the plight of the needy and the poor in dispute situations. After all, some believe, godly people are to show special concern for the weak in their struggles against the rich and the strong. Yet, the Almighty took the opportunity to stress that this must not be and commanded: “You shall not show partiality to a poor man in His dispute” (Exodus 23: 3).

           But what if God had not given this principle? What if God has not emphasized the critical necessity not to allow the state of the poor to influence judgment?

           God is a God of “total righteousness.” Total righteousness implies total justice. Total justice must rule supreme in judgment, no matter who the disputing parties may be. In most cases, the strong and the rich take advantage of the weak and the poor. This has been one of the painful realities of life throughout time, and God clearly condemns it. But He also condemns taking the side of the poor, because of an emotional response to their poverty.

           If God had not stressed the need for total objectivity, God’s greatness would not have been so evident. He truly is a God of righteousness and justice who will not allow anything to interfere with His total objectivity. The judges of the world may favor the rich and the powerful. Kindhearted judges may err on the side of the poor and the weak of society. God supports neither and wants his followers to do the same.

     It is wonderfully inspiring to know that our God is such an amazing Being; that He is so bent on supporting righteousness and justice. The righteous Judge takes only the side of absolute righteousness and demands that we do the same. We are in very good hands.
