Verse of the Day: 'Leave Them For the Poor'

By the Web Editors 03-11-2013
When you harvest your land’s produce, you must not harvest all the way to the edge of your field; and don’t gather up every remaining bit of your harvest. Also do not pick your vineyard clean or gather up all the grapes that have fallen there. Leave these items for the poor and the immigrant; I am the LORD your God.  - Leviticus 19:9-10 + Sign up to receive our social justice verse of the day via e-mail
