Deuteronomy 24:17-22


“Do not deprive the alien or the fatherless of justice, or take the cloak of the widow as a pledge” Deuteronomy 24:17

A court case was instituted against a widow some years ago in a certain city in the Northern part of Nigeria. The widow as not able to defend herself. So, she was to pay a ransom for the offence. The judge noticed that the widow would pay a ransom and because she was helpless, she could hardly meet her needs. Therefore, he volunteered to pay the ransom on her behalf. The judge rescued the helpless widow. In verse 17 of today’s passage, God instructs the people to protect widows like the judge did. He also gave the children of Israel a warning not to take the cloak of the widow as a pledge. The reason for the instruction is that the Israelites were first slaves in Egypt before God set them free and then instructed them to cater for others in need so that He might bless the work of their hands.
This is what God is expecting from all His children today. In order to attract God’s blessing, you must protect widows and help them when necessary. You will always have widows who will need your help around you. You need to think and act on how to make them happy. This is what God is commanding you to do. As you go about your activities daily give a helping hand to at least a widow who comes your way.
