CARING FOR STRANGERS

May 19, 2015

Leviticus 19:10

 

Nor shall you glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the needy and for the stranger. I am the LORD your God.

 

 

LESSON

 

The Israelites were not to harvest their fields and vineyards so thoroughly that there would be nothing left. Farmers in the Promised Land were to leave some of the crops in the field so the poor could come in and glean what remained. This showed both love and respect for the poor.

Unfortunately, much activity and much excitement in modern religious activities has a general disregard for the poor and needy. One cannot legitimately give God thanks and praise while ignoring the poor and needy.

 

Memory Verse: Jeremiah 22:3
