TOPIC: DO WHAT IS RIGHT

TEXT: Deuteronomy 24:10-22(NKJV)
10. ” When you lend your brother anything, you shall not go into his house to get his pledge.
11. “You shall stand outside, and the man to whom you lend shall bring the pledge out to you.
12. “And if the man [is] poor, you shall not keep his pledge overnight.
13. “You shall in any case return the pledge to him again when the sun goes down, that he may sleep in his own garment and bless you; and it shall be righteousness to you before the LORD your God.
14. ” You shall not oppress a hired servant [who is] poor and needy, [whether] one of your brethren or one of the aliens who [is] in your land within your gates.

15. “Each day you shall give [him] his wages, and not let the sun go down on it, for he [is] poor and has set his heart on it; lest he cry out against you to the LORD, and it be sin to you.
16. “Fathers shall not be put to death for [their] children, nor shall the children be put to death for [their] fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin.
17. ” You shall not pervert justice due the stranger or the fatherless, nor take a widow’s garment as a pledge.

19. ” When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.
20. “When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.
21. “When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean [it] afterward; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.
22. “And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore I command you to do this thing.

Anglican Daily Fountain 10 July 2022 Sunday | STUDY:

Doing the right thing may seem difficult but it is not impossible. Today’s passage highlights how best to relate with one another thereby exercising justice in all its forms. When you lend anything to your neighbour, do not enter his or her house to collect it back (vv. 10-11). Whatever you collect from the poor as a collateral for what you gave him/her should not be with you in your house till the following day (vv. 12-13).

The wages or salaries of your hired servants should be paid in due time without any delay (vv. 14-15). Each person should be responsible for his/her sin (v.16). Do not be biased in judgment no matter who is involved (vv.17-18). Remember to share your left overs with the strangers, the fatherless and the widows (vv. 19-22).Today, both the Church and the society are not faithful in discharging the aforementioned instructions.

Dear reader, in which area are you guilty? The summary of the whole thing is that you should show kindness in all your dealings with people at every point in time. Make amends today where necessary.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to be committed to doing your will all the days of my life. Amen.
