Providing Dignity -- & Help

Do not deprive the foreigner or the fatherless of justice, or take the cloak of the widow as a pledge. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you from there. That is why I command you to do this. Deuteronomy 24:17-18

This chapter is very much about safety nets for those who are struggling. To keep people from being kind out of smug pity he calls for them to remember they were once slaves. They were in the same boat once. We do well to remember that. Many of us have not experienced poverty or addictions, but for the grace of God we might have. Don’t look down on people when you help them; they are no different than you. Jesus taught us this lesson in his life on earth. He never demeaned people. He just reminded them of how valuable they were. May we all learn from the best that there be no “least” among us.
