God’s Economy

“When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.” Deuteronomy 24:19
“When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over the boughs again; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow.” Deuteronomy 24:20

None of the above makes good business sense.

Oh Lord, please school me deep in the economy of You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Leave It

Could I leave a sheaf
without going back

or forget a few olives
and be okay with that?

Oh may I trust You
to keep and cover me

whether I be blindly blessing
or gathering for free.

A Rejoicing Tithe

” . . .you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.” Deuteronomy 14:26
“”At the end of every third year you shall bring out the tithe of your produce of that year and store it up within your gates.” Deuteronomy 14:28
“And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance among you and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are within your gates, they come and eat and be satisfied, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.” Deuteronomy 14:29

I received a different look at the tithe in this chapter, seeing more of God’s heart for us in it, to rejoice and bless others.

Lord, thank You for how You work in our work or lack of it, in our finances or need, as we give or as we receive help from others. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Satisfied

You bless us
as we bless others
storing up
in order to give
knowing You provide
the tithe and increase
and the every breath
we need to live.

One Law, One Custom, One Way

“One law and one custom shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.” Numbers 15:16

If you’ve been involved in a situation where double standards applied, you know that it can be confusing, unfair and hurtful.

Father, I thank You that there is only one way to You through Jesus Christ Your Son and He’s available to everyone. And here’s a simple poem . . .

All Welcome

We may be from different places
but we enter in by the same path

some don’t have to climb higher
others can’t get in around back

the rule applies to all
strangers and sojourners alike

we must pass through the blood
of God’s Son, Jesus Christ.

The Art of Gleaning

“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest.
And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:9-10

I don’t have fields or vineyards. Just a simple little blog.

Thank You Lord for the endless field of Your Word that You allow us to glean from. May I leave ample amounts of Your grace and love in the corners of these posts and among the rows of these words for others to come and find. And here’s a simple poem . . .

At The Edge

Standing always a little outside
the many fields of life
watching the labor, the love
the gathering in . . .
do they know what I glean
from the edges,
how much good they leave behind
for me?

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who allows me to glean from their blogs and lives! 🙂
