God will prod.
Moses knows us.
Life will see strife.
Let’s work to free, Let’s work for Thee.
Give us Your Eyes, Lord, Let US see.
God knows that we know better – instructing us to help where we can. Not turn a blind eye. These verses in Deuteronomy are short but SMART – they instruct us to watch out for each other and each other’s lots in life.
There is also a KEY phrase for seeing what God needs us to see – the phrase is: “ANYTHING ELSE”. If we see “anything else” that God needs us to see, we are to act upon our sight, our heart, His Light. He is the ILLUMINATOR.
He paid our DUES, therefore we can try to pick up on His CLUES.
If you see your fellow Israelite’s ox or sheep straying, do not ignore it but be sure to take it back to its owner. If they do not live near you or if you do not know who owns it, take it home with you and keep it until they come looking for it. Then give it back. Do the same if you find their donkey or cloak or anything else they have lost. Do not ignore it. If you see your fellow Israelite’s donkey or ox fallen on the road, do not ignore it. Help the owner get it to its feet. Deuteronomy 22:1-4
