Andrew Wommack Devotional 29 August 2021 – Relieve Each Other’s Burden Written By Andrew Wommack Ministries

TODAY’S ANDREW WOMMACK DEVOTIONAL FOR SUNDAY 29TH AUGUST 2021

TOPIC: RELIEVE EACH OTHER’S BURDEN

SCRIPTURE: Luke 19:23 ‘Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?’

BIBLE READING: LUKE 19:23

MESSAGE

The Greek word for ‘usury’ means primarily ‘a bringing forth, birth, or offsprings.’ It is used metaphorically for the profit received by a lender. The Law of Moses attempted to protect both borrower and lender. In Israel, borrowing and lending were not for big, commercial enterprises but rather to help the poor and needy who lacked everyday necessities.

In lending, the lender had the opportunity to help the poor in need. It was an act of love in which the lender actually lifted a burden by helping his fellow Israelite through a crisis, but was forbidden to charge usury.

To relieve the burden of the poor, debts were released every seven years and property was restored during the year of Jubilee. In the New Testament, the practice of lending money at interest seemed to be accepted as a normal business procedure.

Although Jesus never condemned interest directly, in general, He was hard on the improper attitude toward riches and on the oppression of the poor, just as was the Old Testament.

Also, the principle of making money from someone else’s hardship is not really a godly way of doing business. It was permitted, and even encouraged in this instance, but Deuteronomy 23:19-20 makes it clear that interest was never to be charged to a fellow Israelite.

Today, that would be equivalent to never loaning money with interest to a fellow Christian. Borrowing money is not condemned in scripture unless you interpret Romans 13:8 as speaking of borrowing. However, the scriptures make it clear that borrowing is not God’s best. Deuteronomy 28:12 lists never having to borrow as a blessing, while Deuteronomy 28:44 lists borrowing as a part of the curse of the law. Proverbs 22:7 says, ‘The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.’
