Deuteronomy 24:6

''When you lend money to people, you are allowed to keep something of theirs as a guarantee that they will pay back the loan. But don't take one or both of their millstones, or else they may starve. They need these stones for grinding grain into flour to make bread.'' Deuteronomy 24:6

There is much more to the economic instructions in the Bible than we tend to believe. The various principles speak to all sorts of applications, but the general sense is very simple. God desired to protect the weak and poor from oppression by those with power and wealth. God wanted all people to have appropriate access to the resources of the land and the production of wealth.


Forty-Sixth Day after Pentecost:
Series: Pentecost Devotional

Matthew 25:40

''The king will answer, ''Whenever you did it for any of my people, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did it for me.'' Matthew 25:40

Whether referring to good or bad, we have difficulty understanding the scope and application of these words of Jesus. In fact, Jesus uses these same words in opposite scenarios in the passage. The king utters them in reference to ministering to someone deemed insignificant and failing to do the same. He treats both as ministering to or refusing to minister to Jesus.
