Leviticus 18: 9-10 ” 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. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.”

For the most part, those of you who will read this don’t own farm ground or vineyards…so you might ask yourself, how does this Scripture apply to me? Well, for starters, as Believers we should be concerned with things that God’s concerned with, right? Things that are important to God need to be important to us…and aliens, widows, and orphans are extremely important to Him. So much, that He made special provisions for them, a safety-net so to speak, in order that they could survive. So how does it apply to you today? One way could be to keep a change jar that you throw your spare change into…and periodically give the money to a worthy cause. But a great idea would be to not keep your schedule so packed full that you couldn’t volunteer on short notice when asked…that’s because protecting, providing, and procuring for the less fortunate seldom happens on a perfect timetable…but that doesn’t mean the project still isn’t very important to God…and if it’s important to Him, it needs to be important to us.
