JUSTICE

Deuteronomy 15:7-8

 

If in any of the towns in the land that the Lord your God is giving you there is a fellow-Israelite in need, then do not be selfish and refuse to help him. Instead, be generous and lend him as much as he needs.
 

LESSON

 

God values each person equally as an individual. This perspective comes out clearly in this section. God instructed His people to show concern for the welfare of every individual regardless of his or her economic or social position. Elsewhere in the ancient Near East men were treated in terms of their status in the community rather than as individuals.

God has made of one blood all nations of men, for to dwell upon the face of the whole earth.” This is the announcement of a grand fact, which has never yet been successfully disproved. This relates man to man everywhere, makes all the world a neighborhood, and founds upon universal affinity a universal claim.

 

Memory Verse: Luke 4:18
