Leviticus 6:1-7

Lev 6:1 Yahveh spoke to Moses, and this is what he said,
Lev 6:2 “If any soul makes a mistake and commits an act of betrayal against Yahveh by deceiving his associate in a matter of deposit or security, or through robbery, or if he has exploited his associate
Lev 6:3 or has found something lost and lied about it, swearing falsely– in any of all the things that a human does and make a mistake thereby–
Lev 6:4 if he has made a mistake and has realised his offence and will restore what he took by robbery or what he got by exploitation or the deposit that was committed to him or the lost thing that he found
Lev 6:5 or anything about which he has sworn falsely, he will restore it in full and will add a fifth to it, and give it to him to whom it belongs on the day he realises his need for reparation.
Lev 6:6 And he will bring to the priest as his reparation to Yahveh a perfect ram out of the flock, or its equivalent for a reparation offering.
Lev 6:7 And the priest will provide reconciliation for him in Yahveh’s sight, and he will be forgiven for any of the things that he may do and thereby bringing the need for reparation upon himself.”

he wants to love through us

Offences against my associate are regarded in the Law of God as offences against the LORD. That is because the covenant with the LORD demands that we love those we associate with in the same way that we love ourselves. It is also because the LORD loves them in the same way that he loves us. We are all his children, and he does not show partiality. That is why one could not even be devout if he entertained hatred, deception, or envy of his fellow human beings.

The LORD loves us as individuals. But he also wants to love other individuals through us. Failure to love required a reparation sacrifice. It was a serious offence. It still is.

LORD, love our associates through us.
