Leviticus 23:22 (NIV) “‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.'”
God gives us blessings in many aspects of our lives. Money from work, food from farming and much more. Today I wanted to talk about this verse from the book of Leviticus. The intial meaning that I first think of is, this is the Lord’s blessings and his harvest. He has allowed it to grow and flourish. So, when he tells us not to be selfish then that let’s me know that there is more than enough in that harvest for my and my family’s needs. He says not to go to the edges in collections. Do not pick anything fallen from the ground, that is for the animals, or the less fortunate. God will supply! He may very well be answering a prayer through you today, a prayer that another person has asked. I’m sure some of the less fortunate people were praying to God for food for survival, and he has commanded the fortunate to leave the edges or the crops uncollected! What an amazing God, to use our blessings for blessing even more people! Now think about your life today, maybe it’s not money that God has blessed you with. But I can assure you that you do have a gift, use that gift to bless someone today, use it everyday! Maybe it helps you make a living remember do collect the edges of your field, don’t be selfish, but share. May God bless you and you bless others!
