Every 7 Years

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 – 15 “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts.And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the Lord’s release.
 
There is no greater feeling for people than to pay off a debt. Whether it be a credit card, mortgage, car loan, etc., there is a “freedom” we experience when we know that a particular financial burden has been lifted. The same can be said for our walk with the Lord and other Christians. 
 
In today’s passage, we are told that the Israelites were to 15 “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts….because it is called the Lord’s release.” When it comes to our spiritual journey, we are all given “the Lord’s release” in the form of grace. God told the Israelites to show grace because they first had been shown that same grace by God. The Lord expects all of us to show that same “release” to those around us in the form of grace. We are quick to expect grace from others, but, perhaps not so quick to give it. If we are to walk in the Spirit, we must show God’s grace to all because He first showed it to us. As you look at your life, if God showed you the same amount of grace that you show others, what would your life look like?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
