Bible verses about "fairness" | Goodspeed

John 3:16-17

16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that no one who believes in him should be lost, but that they should all have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to pass judgment upon the world, but that through him the world might be saved.

James 3:17

17 The wisdom that is from above is first of all pure, then peaceable, considerate, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds, whole-hearted, straightforward.

Matthew 20:1-16

1 For the Kingdom of Heaven is like an employer who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 2 He agreed with the laborers to pay them a dollar a day, and sent them to his vineyard. 3 He went out about nine o'clock and saw others standing in the bazaar with nothing to do. 4 And he said to them, 'You go to my vineyard, too, and I will pay you whatever is right.' So they went. 5 He went out again about twelve and about three, and did the same. 6 About five he went out and found others standing about and he said to them, 'Why have you been standing about here all day doing nothing?' 7 They said to him, 'Because nobody has hired us.' He said to them, 'You go to my vineyard, too.' 8 When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last and ending with the first.' 9 When those who were hired about five o'clock came they received a dollar apiece. 10 And when those who were hired first came they expected to get more, but they too got a dollar apiece. 11 And when they received it they grumbled at their employer, 12 and said, 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour, and you have put them on the same footing with us who have done the heavy work of the day and have stood the midday heat.' 13 But he answered one of them, 'My friend, I am doing you no injustice. Did you not agree with me on a dollar? 14 Take what belongs to you and go. I wish to give the last man hired as much as I give you. 15 Have I no right to do what I please with what is mine? Or do you begrudge my generosity?' 16 So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last."

Mark 12:28-31

28 One of the scribes came up and heard them arguing. He saw that Jesus had answered them well, and he asked him, "Which is the first of all the commands?" 29 Jesus answered, "The first one is, 'Hear, Israel! The Lord our God is one lord, 30 and you must love the Lord your God with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind, and your whole strength.' 31 And this is the second: 'You must love your neighbor as you do yourself.' No other command is greater than these."

16 So those who are last now will be first then, and those who are first will be last."

James 2:1-5

1 My brothers, do you try to combine faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with acts of partiality? 2 For if a finely dressed man with a gold ring comes into a meeting, and a poor man in shabby clothes comes in also, 3 and you pay attention to the man in the fine clothes and say to him, "Sit here; this is a good place!" and say to the poor man, "Stand up, or sit on the floor at my feet," 4 have you not wavered and shown that your judgments are guided by base motives? 5 Listen, my dear brothers. Has not God chosen the world's poor to be rich in faith, and to possess the kingdom that he promised to those who love him?

Hebrews 6:10

10 For God is not so unjust as to forget the work you have done and the love you have showed for his cause, in giving help to your fellow-Christians as you still do.
