Our passage today continues to give laws that teach us some very important lessons
- The Lord’s Name – One of the people blasphemed the name of God. The penalty was death, and he was stoned. Here is a reminder of how serious God is about how we treat his name. While the punishment is part of the Mosaic Covenant, the command comes from the Third Commandment – a universal law. How do you treat God’s name? Do you use it as a curse? Do you treat it poorly?
- The Poor – Chapter 25 reveals God’s concern for the poor. How does your heart match the heart of God? How are you helping those in need?
