If you see your fellow Israelite’s ox or sheep straying, do not ignore it but be sure to take it back to its owner. Deuteronomy 22:1

This section of Deuteronomy (in fact the entire book) is all about community. God gives commands for how we look after one another. “Finders keepers; losers weepers,” is not of God. If you find your neighbor’s cow, take it back to its owner. If you don’t know who the owner is (vs.2) take care of it until the owner comes looking for it. We are much better to be united with our neighbors than to have more oxen or sheep or money. If community is this important to God, then how might we live today to build community? Connect with your neighbors. Today is a holiday. Check your perimeter to see if there is a neighbor out with whom you might have a conversation. Happy Labor Day!
