In my pursuit of knowing more about God, I have signed up to receive daily Mitzvah (Hebrew word mitzvah refers to precepts and commandments commanded by God) from a Jewish website. This does not mean I don’t believe in Jesus, I do, but that I thirst for more of God. So I dig deeper, search longer, and talk with him all day long. This has led me to this website, and as I read today’s Mitzvah given to the Israelites thousands of years ago, it spoke volumes to me today.
Negative Commandment 269
Disregarding a Lost Item
“You shall not ignore [it]”—Deuteronomy 22:3.
It is forbidden to disregard a lost item. Rather, upon encountering a lost item one must take it and endeavor to return it to its owner.
Now let me interpret what God said to me as I read it.
“you shall not ignore the broken and lost”
It is forbidden to disregard a lost person. Rather, upon encountering a lost one, you must take it and endeavor to return it to its owner (Jesus).
Positive Commandment 204
Returning a Lost Article
“You shall surely bring it back to him”—Exodus 23:4.
When coming across a lost item, we are required to take it and return it to its owner.
Interpretation to me from God
“you shall surely bring him/her back to Him (Jesus)”
When you come across a lost soul, we are required to take them back to their creator for restoration.
It is our duty and responsibility as Christians to lead others to Christ. I hope you get the same thing out of these commandments as I did.
May the peace of God rest upon you and your household.
