Sin is simply imbalance.
It is being out of balance when someone is put on the weighing scale of justice.
It is the ‘Tekel’ in the inscription written on the wall of Belshazzar’s Babylonian palace by a hand.
Tekel means you have been weighed in the balances,and found wanting -Daniel 5:27
Righteousness,on the other hand,is balance.
You are put on the weighing scale of justice and it is balanced.
It is humbling to know that it is not he who is being weighed on one side that also balances the scale on the other side.
The scale on the other side that ensures balance for the righteous is given out on credit!
“Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”
