daily wages rule

Deuteronomy 24:14-15 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 24:14 “Do not exploit a hired worker who is poor and needy, whether one of your Israelite brothers or one of the guests in a town in your land.
Deuteronomy 24:15 You are to pay him his wages each day before the sun sets, because he is poor and his throat depends on them. Otherwise he will cry out to Yahveh against you, and you will be held guilty of the mistake.

The daily wages rule ensured that hired workers would be able to eat and provide for their families. Notice also that Yahveh is listening to the prayers of the hired worker. He will provide justice for the workers who are being mistreated by punishing the employer who exploits them.

This is practical Christian living here. A believer who thinks that he can follow any selfish practice he wants and use his employees any way he wants does not understand God. Our God is a deliverer, a bringer of justice to the oppressed. If we want to reflect his character in our workplace, we have to begin with fair and equitable treatment of all employees.

Lord, make us people who care for our employees, worthy of the work they give us.
