The Bureau of Labor Statistics said this week that the consumer price index rose 1.3% in June and 9.1% over the past year. It’s been 40 years since Americans grappled with such high inflation. This presents an economic problem, but it is also a moral one—and the Bible offers some guidance.
The Scriptures are full of teachings about the importance of sound money. The Torah, the first five books of the Bible, contains 25 references to the “shekel of the sanctuary,” a fixed-weight coin placed in the Lord’s Tabernacle to ensure that all commercial transactions are based on “a perfect and righteous weight” (Deuteronomy 25:15).
