Leave Something for Others

When you harvest your grain, always leave some of it standing along the edges of your fields and don’t pick up what falls on the ground. Don’t strip your grapevines clean or gather the grapes that fall off the vines. Leave them for the poor and for those foreigners who live among you. I am the Lord your God.

 (Leviticus 19:9-10 CEV)

The Lord often reminded His people to leave some of their produce for the poor and alien, also known as the law of gleaning. Today, God still expects us to leave something for others. For instance, taking one item when it’s limited to “one per household” or letting go of the other job that we don’t need. Be considerate of others. The temptation to take everything is great, but the consequences are even greater.

Leave something for others to glean.
