Celebrating God’s Faithfulness
19 When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands. 20 When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 21 When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 22 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.
All that we have came from God
It is God who provided both the strength to labour & the fruits of our labour. We can be still today and say thanks to God for providing, protecting & sustaining us. We give God thanks because little is much when God is in it.
We have a responsibility to care of each other
We are reminded that we have an opportunity to look out for each other. We have an opportunity to ensure that our neighbours have food to eat, clothes to wear and a place to sleep or call home. We have a responsibility to ensure that those around us live lives that are dignified.
To be conscious at our redemption stories
Each of us can recall the many times that God came through for us in the past. Maybe you are giving thanks because when the doctors gave up on you God came through for you. That is your redemption story. You have finally found a job after searching. That is your redemption story.
