안녕하세요, family and friends. Today, we’re going to read Deuteronomy 15.
I have mentioned before that giving and gratefulness are running themes in the Bible. This chapter is no different.
Deuteronomy 15 teaches us to give even when we know that we may not receive anything in return. The Cancelling of Debts is all about creating a clean slate when it comes to things that we owe others.
See, in our day and age I’m not entirely sure how relevant it could be for us. The Cancelling of Debts? It’s unheard of in some parts of the country. The reason for this is because somehow we now value money over the well-being of others.
I am also guilty of this. When it comes to money, I do hold a tight grip on it. Although I have been working on myself, so I won’t value money as much as I am currently. It is hard though, especially when you know you’ve worked hard to earn it.
But is it truly awful to keep the money to yourself when you know that it won’t be going to any things good?
For instance, someone asking for financial help to aid their crippling addiction? I mean, it’s hard to know where exactly the money goes after you’ve let go of it. But, should we think twice about giving a helping hand when it comes to money?
Let me know in the comments below.
Also, if you want to read this chapter but don’t have a physical copy of the Bible. Check out page 2, you can read it there.
If you like reading devotionals, I upload every day except on Sundays. On Wednesdays, I upload Life Lessons posts. Lastly, every 23rd of the month a new Turtle of the Month is live.
