We have to start with the last words of Psalm 19. We see in 19:14 – “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” This is how I pray before every sermon as I begin. This is a real prayer that God would take my Words and make them His words so that what I might say would not only track with what God would want me to say, but that it is actually consistent with God’s Word in every way shape or form.
There is more in Leviticus that should be discussed, such as the year of Jubilee. Did you catch that? Every 50 years the land is to go fallow, the slaves are to be set free, and things revert back to where they were before people took out loans and sold things to keep afloat. What a wonderful example of bringing everything together in a family so that no one person suffers and no one person takes advantage of another, ever.
