Fair Treatment

Bible verses about fair treatment.

As Christians, we are called to treat others with love and fairness. Jesus himself gives us the commandment to "love your neighbour as yourself" (Matthew 22:39). But how can we apply this in our daily lives? How can we ensure we are treating everyone around us justly? One way is to turn to the Bible for guidance. In this blog post, we will take a look at 10 Bible verses that can help guide us towards treating others with fairness and respect.


1) Proverbs 31:8-9 - "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." This verse reminds us to use our voices to fight for those who are less fortunate and to always judge others fairly.

2) Leviticus 19:15 - "Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favouritism to the great, but judge your neighbour fairly." This verse tells us not to show bias towards anyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status.

3) Colossians 3:23 - "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." This verse reminds us that we should do our best in everything we do, treating each person we encounter with respect and fairness.

4) Romans 12:10 - "Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." By showing honour and love to every person we encounter, we are being fair in our treatment of them.

5) James 2:8-9 - "If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, 'Love your neighbour as yourself,' you are doing right. But if you show favouritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers." This verse reminds us that showing favouritism to anyone is sinful and goes against God's law.

6) Galatians 3:28 - "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." This verse shows us that in God's eyes, we are all equal, regardless of our race, gender, or social status.

7) Micah 6:8 - "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." This verse reminds us that God asks us to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly in everything we do.

8) Proverbs 21:3 - "To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice." This verse emphasizes that doing the right thing and treating others fairly is more important to God than any material offerings we can give Him.

9) Matthew 7:12 - "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." This verse reminds us of the Golden Rule - we should treat others how we would like to be treated.

10) Ephesians 4:2 - "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." By showing humility, gentleness, and patience towards everyone we encounter, we are treating them fairly and with respect.


In conclusion, these 10 Bible verses show us that treating others fairly and justly is an essential part of our Christian faith. By following these guidelines, we can ensure that we are living out the commandment to "love your neighbour as yourself" and showing God's love to all those around us.
