Caring for the Poor… God’s Message to Moses.
God has always had provision for the poor. He has laid the foundation of “giving to the poor,” back since the Book of Leviticus. “And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of the field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them to the poor, and to the stranger. I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 23:22
God knew there would always be poor… that’s why He commanded all the people “not to reap the entire field, but leave the corners, for the poor.” Going ahead to the Book of Ruth. This is what Ruth (in the Book of Ruth), was doing to survive, and feed her mother-in-law, whom she dearly loved, Naomi. And, as the “beautiful” Ruth was gleaning in the fields, of “older, richer, Boaz”, he saw this beautiful maiden (whose husband had died) and told the reapers to “leave more behind for her.” They did and with this happy ending… Boaz married Ruth and was included in the lineage that led down to Jesus! God always has a “supernatural plan,” inside the “natural plan!” Have a great day, and don’t forget to “leave something behind for the poor.”
