DEUTERONOMY 15:7

“If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother”

 

AFTER INSTRUCTING HIS PEOPLE TO CANCEL ALL DEBTS IN THE SEVENTH YEAR, THAT ANYONE OWING YOU MONEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY OUT THAT DEBT, HE GOES ON WITH A TEACHING ABOUT KINDNESS AND CARING FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LESS THAN YOURSELF.

WE ARE TO EXTEND KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY TOWARDS OTHERS, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN NEED. WE ARE TO OPEN OUR HEARTS TO THE POOR AND NEEDY.
