Read: Deuteronomy 24
“You are not to deprive the foreigner or the orphan of the justice which is due, and you are not to take a widow’s clothing as collateral for a loan. Rather, remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and Adonai your God redeemed you from there. That is why I am ordering you to do this.” (Deuteronomy 24:17, 18 CJSB)
God has loved us and delivered us, and so we must provide loving deliverance to others. People are not objects to be handled for our own benefit, nor are they to be pushed to the side, so that our personal progress is not impeded. People—foreigners, orphans, widows, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends, and strangers—are subjects to be loved. Because you have been lovingly delivered, we must bring love and deliverance to the familiar and the forgotten. Pure and undefiled religion is found in doing such things. So, this day and all days, watch for the foreigner. Seek the orphan in need of justice. Recognize each widow’s meager covering. Then, this day and all days, deliver love and you will see redemption break from each broken seed who is very good soil.
