A characteristic of God that cannot be missed is his love for all people. Again and again, both in the New Testament and the Old, we see the care and concern of God for all people. It does not matter if one is poor or rich, God loves all. One way in which this is seen clearly is in the idea of the Jubilee. There is a making things right attitude that helps all to get their due. It is the horizontal justice we should have, one for another.
It can be the case that we may want mercy from God, but not be willing to extend that mercy to others. The Jubilee reminds us that all is a gift from God. Nothing is ours alone. All of us have received underserved blessings. Today, revel in God’s glory and generosity.
