2/19/2018 — Leviticus Chapters 19-21
As we continue reading the Law given to the Israelites we see the Lord providing specific laws for taking care of the ones we would consider the “downtrodden.”
Leviticus 19:9-10 — 9 When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus 19:14 — 4 Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the Lord.
The Lord has no greater respect of the rich and powerful — His grace and love crosses all social and economic lines.
