“When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the LORD your God.”
This same teaching from God is repeated again in Deuteronomy 24:19-22. If we do not have time to serve God by serving others, then we probably have no margin. We are gleaning right up to the edge of our field time-wise. If we do not have any money or other resources to share with a brother or sister in need, again, we are probably living right up to the edge of our field, financially speaking. In today’s language that means we are probably living beyond our means.
Are you maintaining healthy margins in your life? If not, what will it take for you to do so? What steps do you need to take to stop "harvesting" right up to the edge? God, and other too, do not want or need our leftovers.
