BDBD is Proverb 16:11

The proverb says that the Lord God owns just and honest weights and balances, he made all the stones for measuring. This refers to his judgment of everyone’s soul. “…the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

God wrote on the wall to King Belshazzar, “Mene, mene, tekel, parsin”. The prophet Daniel translated the four words and explained their meaning. Tekel means, “You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.” (Daniel 5:25, 27) Job declared, “…let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless…” (Job 31:6)

God made the stones, that is the means to determine the weight of a person’s soul. Does it have value? He is honest and just in his judgment. The means to determine a person’s value is based on their actions and thoughts. Are they pure and just? Is a person true?

The Lord God weighed me and I was found wanting. Yet, through Christ, he has given me value. He forgave my sins through Christ. Now the Lord wants me. Now I am valuable. He holds me in his wallet.
