THE LABOURERS’ DUE – Tue, Dec 08, 2015


Isaiah 3:14-15 KJV
The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

[15] What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.

Isaiah lived in the time of the early kings of Israel and I read from a Bible commentary that he saw the era of about four different kings before he was finally sawn into two by king Manasseh.

Whenever I come across passages like these the first thing that comes to mind is that of Employers and Entrepreneurs, and how some of them treat those who work for them.

Even in his days, Isaiah spoke against “grinding the faces of the poor.” I find it very difficult to understand how the man who has more would still want to keep the little that is due his subordinate. This is evil and demonic in my opinion and God will definitely bring judgement to such action, according to Isaiah.

Give to those who are ‘beneath’ you what is due them. There’s no need to “keep their spoil in your house.” That way you open up your house to greater blessings from the Master himself.

Have a blessed day.
