Pittance (Deuteronomy 15:1-11)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “pittance.” God's people have laws for about everything. In the middle of Deuteronomy, God commands his people on how they should handle debts. He wanted to make sure that people were not being stingy or misusing the resources that he had blessed them with. He reminded people that no matter how well off you become; there is always somebody that needs a little bit of help.

“There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.”
~Deut 15:11

My question is: how do you view your relationship with God? We live in the greatest country in the world and no matter how bad we think we have it, we pretty much have it way better than any other country in the world. My prayer is that you put those thoughts on how you can help other people. It's amazing what can happen when we take the focus off of ourselves and look to see how we can help God's people. The next time you believe that you are living on a pittance, turn those thoughts into action and help someone else as a blessing in the Lord.

Praying for you,
