Various Laws

Exodus 21-23 and Psalm 18 See also Matthew 5:38-42

Reading these laws of old make me wonder how to apply them to my life in 2016 and beyond. The best response I can give is one of historical perspective, that these words provide color to the outlines of our ancestors. Slaves for over 400 years, God provides rules, commands, laws–he provides structure for them to grow into the people he has promised. It won’t happen quickly, “Little by little” is the promise.

I’m grateful we don’t live by the letter of these laws. Lord help me to understand an appreciate your words. Help me know how to explain this to those who are far from you, but are trying to wrap their minds around the Bible. Help me understand how to guide them.
