duty to the disabled

Deuteronomy 27:18 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 27:18 ‘The one who leads a blind person astray on the road is afflicted with a curse.’ And all the people will say, ‘Amen!’

duty to the disabled

Cruelty to others for one’s own amusement has always been regarded as wrong. When those others are handicapped, the transgression is compounded. The Israelites were to take care of each other, and to be particularly careful to help those with disabilities.

The special people among us who suffer from disabilities are a test for us, to determine the authenticity of this love we talk about. If we cannot love our neighbors whom we can see, it does no good to talk about our love for God. He identifies with the blind and crippled.

Lord, show us how to help all those among us who need special help. Remove from us the evil that takes advantage of someone else’s weakness.
