March 10, 2013 | Love Does: Part 4

Scripture: Leviticus 19:9–10 (CEB)

When you harvest your land’s produce, you must not harvest all the way to the edge of your field; and don’t gather up every remaining bit of your harvest. Also do not pick your vineyard clean or gather up all the grapes that have fallen there. Leave these items for the poor and the immigrant; I am the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 24:19–20 (CEB)

Whenever you are reaping the harvest of your field and you leave some grain in the field, don’t go back and get it. Let it go to the immigrants, the orphans, and the widows so that the Lord your God blesses you in all that you do. Similarly, when you beat the olives off your olive trees, don’t go back over them twice. Let the leftovers go to the immigrants, the orphans, and the widows.

Proverbs 22:2 (CEB)

The rich and the poor have this in common: the Lord made them both.

Isaiah 58:7 (CEB)

Isn’t it sharing your bread with the hungry
 and bringing the homeless poor into your house, covering the naked when you see them, and not hiding from your own family?
