"If any of your people—Hebrew men or women—sell themselves to you and serve you six years, in the seventh year you must let them go free. And when you release them, do not send them away empty-handed. Supply them liberally from your flock, your threshing floor and your winepress. Give to them as the Lord your God has blessed you. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you. That is why I give you this command today.
But if your servant says to you, "I do not want to leave you,” because he loves you and your family and is well off with you, then take an awl and push it through his earlobe into the door, and he will become your servant for life. Do the same for your female servant. Do not consider it a hardship to set your servant free, because their service to you these six years has been worth twice as much as that of a hired hand. And the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do.
Set apart for the Lord your God every firstborn male of your herds and flocks. Do not put the firstborn of your cows to work, and do not shear the firstborn of your sheep. Each year you and your family are to eat them in the presence of the Lord your God at the place he will choose. If an animal has a defect, is lame or blind, or has any serious flaw, you must not sacrifice it to the Lord your God. You are to eat it in your own towns. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it, as if it were gazelle or deer. But you must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water.”
People express many and different opinions as to whether the Lord of Christianity is fair or not. But no matter what think if we are fair to the contents of the scriptures then we will not doubt the fairness of the Lord. Yes the world is not fair but the Lord is; He never wanted slaves to be freed empty handed because He cares for them too.
The Lord made them to remember that once upon the time they were slaves in Egypt. That is very important to us also we ought to know that we were nobody before we were blessed to become somebody today. We, therefore, need to be kind, and appreciate those who are labeled as the under privilege in society.
Prayer:-pray for all under-privilege people in your society, especially those in various orphanages.
