MMM Day 12: Not to Take a Bribe

March Mitzvot Madness Day 12

This one seems pretty clear. But there are many ways that people try to “bribe” someone. It’s not always as straightforward as money for a favor. Adonai’s gift of discernment will enable us to recognize the covert bribe for what it is and refuse it.

You are not to receive a bribe, for a bribe blinds the clearsighted and subverts the cause of the righteous. ~~ Exodus 23: 8
