10.25.2018 – Old Testament: Jer 15.10
To read the Bible in a year, read Jeremiah 14–16 on October 25, In the year of our Lord Christ 2018
By Don Ruhl
Jeremiah spoke and did what the Lord told him to say and to do. Yet, his people persecuted him for it, so much so, that he spoke to his mother, saying:
Woe is me, my mother,
That you have borne me,
A man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth!
I have neither lent for interest,
Nor have men lent to me for interest.
Every one of them curses me.
What had Jeremiah’s mother brought into the world? She had delivered to the world a man with whom they strove and against whom they contended, although he had never lent for interest nor had anyone lent to him for interest, because the Law of Moses had said that the Israelites were not to charge their brethren interest when they loaned money.
- Do you think we should charge our brethren interest when we loan them money?
- What do you value more: Your money or your brethren?
