Social Services

Deuteronomy 24:17-21
17 “You are not to deprive the foreigner or the orphan of the justice which is his due, and you are not to take a widow’s clothing as collateral for a loan. 18 Rather, remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and Adonai your God redeemed you from there. That is why I am ordering you to do this.
19 “When harvesting the grain in your field, if you forgot a sheaf of grain there, you are not to go back and get it; it will remain there for the foreigner, the orphan and the widow, so that Adonai your God will bless you in all the work you do. 20 When you beat your olive tree, you are not to go back over the branches again; the olives that are left will be for the foreigner, the orphan and the widow. 21 When you gather the grapes from your vineyard, you are not to return and pick grapes a second time; what is left will be for the foreigner, the orphan and the widow.
We as believers and followers of Yeshua are to be the social services to the world not goverments. Goverments are established to control people, to govern the way they act, we as believers though are to establish Adonai’s love in the hearts of the people. How can we do that if we only take care of our own?  Adonai Tzva’ot, Lord of Host, strengthen me to stand in the gap for the poor and cast off in this world. Soften my heart to hear in those times I think I am too tired, too busy, too anything to help. I ask this in Yeshua’s name Amen.
