A Just Judge

Exit Ticket: Tuesday April 5, 2016

1. The famous philosopher Socrates is credited with the proverb, "Justice is its own reward." What does this mean? Do you think the judge in today's story believed that? Why or why not?

What does it mean?

I think that "Justice is it's own reward" is a reward for yourself.
When you solve a case and discover the truth, the fact the you figured it out and helped someone is a gift.
How you feel you did, how proud you are of yourself is a gift greater than, money, or goods.
I think that they could use this in the story because there was justice in that case and there was a reward.
You just couldn't really see the reward because it was a feeling.

2. Do you think the wise judge in the story suspects that receiving payment from the king would not be wise? Why might taking money be a bad idea for a judge?

That would be bad

If the judge is really wise he would not accept any money.
But if the king wanted him to take he should so that it would not insult the king.
A wise person will never accept money for doing a good deed, but he should take the money to make the king happy.
