The various scenarios that Moses presents in Deuteronomy are almost comical in nature. His seemingly endless list of strange situations and the particular laws that apply to them is truly amazing. But it just goes to show how deeply God cares about the holiness of His people. He leaves nothing to chance. And in Deuteronomy 25:11-19, Moses deals with three seemingly dissimilar and disconnected scenarios that appear to have little in common. But, in reality, they all deal with personal holiness as exhibited in the day-to-day interactions between the people of God. Their status as God’s chosen people was intended to make a difference in the way they lived their lives. Interpersonal relationships are so important in God’s family. The proper care and concern for each other’s well-being was mandatory. And all those who treated Israelites poorly were to be dealt with severely.
