Someone else posted a tid bit if this weeks meeting...but here's my favorite part...
So...Deuteronomy...Jehovah cares for the poor...those with no inheritance get help...debts are forgiven...and THEN!
"If one of your brothers, a hebrew man or woman, is sold to you and has SERVED you for six years, then in the SEVENTH YEAR you should SET HIM FREE. And if you should set him free, DO NOT send him away EMPTY HANDED. You should supply him GENEROUSLY with something from your flock, your threshing floor, and your press for oil and wine, Just as Jehovah your God has blessed you, you should give to him"
So, in the seventh year of his servitude, an Israelite who had sold himself into slavery was set free and given a gift by his master!!!!!!!!!
....ehem....Personally I think the GB should focus more on THIS...once you've reached your 7th year of service, you're free to go, and then send you off with some cash for your time....
This!!!!!!! Yes, Please!!!!
