Exodus 21-24

In Exodus 21-24 We see God distinguish Israel from everyone else in the world by providing laws for them, to help them standout and be different. The law teaches that protection for at risk classes such as slaves, widows, and orphans. The laws help to restrain evil by providing consequences for crime, punishments to fit every crime. The law teaches how we should treat everyone from neighbors to strangers to enemies. The law teaches us to remember what God has done for us and to celebrate what God has done. God reveals his promise and confirms his covenant.

What is one key verse? 

“You shall not delay to offer from the fullness of your harvest and from the outflow of your presses. The firstborn of your sons you shall give to me.

Exodus 22:29

How does what you read change your vision of God?

God has provided for us in infinite ways. Ultimately Exodus 21-24 reminds me to treat others as myself. The laws that God gave Moses were supposed to create harmony amongst the people of Israel.

How does what you read change your vision of yourself or others?

Exodus 21-24 reminds me to love God and treat others as myself. To be dedicated in praising God and giving back to God with the treasure he has bestowed upon me.

How will you Go With God because of this reading? (What is an action step?)

Exodus 21-24 reminds me to love God and treat others as myself. To be dedicated in praising God and giving back to God with the treasure he has bestowed upon me.

Where did you see Jesus in these chapters? (What made you think about Jesus?)

When Moses talks about the treatment of widows and orphans in Exodus 22:22 it reminds me of when Jesus talks in Matthew 25:31-40 about what has been done for the least as been done for Him.

  2. What struck me in that verse is “you shall not delay” in your obedience. That is definately a challenge for me. Amazing how God works, because my obedience is something that was laid on my heart this weekend and first thing Monday morning, I have a reminder from God to not delay! He gives us what we need, so cool. Thanks for sharing!
