“When you gather the grapes from your vineyard, you are not to return and pick grapes a second time; what is left will be for the foreigner, the orphan and the window. Remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt. That is why I am ordering you do this.”
Deuteronomy 24:21-22 CJB
A couple of questions to think about here: Do we have enough? And do we really need more? Sometimes we forget that the LORD saved us from a life of slavery in sin and this is a reminder to not overlook those who are still slaves!
“He who is kind to the poor is lending to Adonai; and He will repay him for his good deed.”
Proverbs 19:17 CJB
The LORD gives to us freely, so we should freely give. Remember, we can’t out-give the LORD! Honestly, we probably have enough and really don’t need more.
“In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they may see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16 CJB
Today, let us remember there is always someone in worse shape than you or I, so let’s be mindful and giving so we can glorify our father in heaven! Have a blessed day!
