the sacred right to work

Deuteronomy 27:17 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 27:17 ‘The one who moves his neighbor’s boundary marker is afflicted with a curse.’ And all the people will say, ‘Amen!’

the sacred right to work

To move a neighbor’s boundary marker is to steal part of his potential for earning a living. Personal property was important to God. He wanted the citizens of his nation to have the ability to earn a living, and provide for their families. He did not want people to lose this ability because of someone else’s greed and cunning.

There are lots of factors that contribute to poverty and unemployment. God’s word for us today is that we should make sure we are not part of that equation. We should hold sacred a person’s right to work and produce an income, because God does.

Lord, show us how to encourage others to live up to their potential. Show us the ways that we keep others from doing so.
