God Gives/Defends Dignity
When you make a loan of any kind to your neighbor, do not go into their house to get what is offered to you as a pledge. Deuteronomy 24:10
Again, I don’t understand everything I read of God’s rules of engagement (laws). It is too difficult to translate over thousands of years of cultural and language changes. I like this one though. I get the sense that God works to protect the dignity of the poor. If one is without, you will see it in their home. God would not put poor people through that indignity. In fact, the poor person needs to come up with a pledge (something of value to give to the loaner until debt repaid), but the loaner is called upon by God (next verse, vs.11) to give the pledge back to one who has nothing. I love God who is so careful to preserve our dignity. Have a great day!
