Fair Judging

Left, Pacquiao; Right, Bradley

There is a huge uproar in the world of professional boxing after the controversial outcome of the welterweight title fight Saturday night in Las Vegas. Most observers thought that Manny Pacquiao successfully defended his title against challenger Timothy Bradley. However, two of the three judges saw it differently, and their decision is the one that counts.

Sports writer Tim Dahlberg called the judging “…questionable, if not borderline incompetent.” Dahlberg adds, “But boxing has always been a subjective sport, and anything shy of a knockout is always open to interpretation by the three ringside judges who score each round.”

Life is often unfair. We sometimes disagree with those who give their assessment of our efforts. It’s good to know that the final analysis of our lives will be made by a Judge who is perfectly fair and impartial.

“God will give to each person according to what he has done…For God does not show favoritism.”—Romans 2:6,11.
