Ed Alexander spoke of the phrase, “The many standards earth has set, the joy it offers warily” from Hymn 130.
Proverbs 16:11, Proverbs 11:1, a just weight and balance are the Lords; all the weights of the bag are His work. A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, but a just weight is His delight. God has given us one true measure in Jesus. The world’s standards continually change, but God’s standard doesn’t change.
God isn’t asking anything of us different from the standard of heaven. A plumb line is one of the oldest unchanged tools used by man. It becomes affected only by wind, or if it touches the ground. Jesus’ life was not affected by the winds about Him, and would desire us to live our days on earth as days in heaven.
