Protecting the Defenseless

“At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Ps. 16: 11)

Growing Dominion, Part 144

“Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless: for their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead their cause with thee” (Prov. 23:10-11).

The world of property, fields, and assets is a world which contains defenseless people. Actually, it would be more to the point to say that it contains people who appear to be defenseless. A little old widow who doesn’t know anything about cars drops hers off for work—and to rip her off would be like taking candy from a baby. The orphan has to have trustees watch out for him, and many times they do not—they move the landmarks.

But those who take advantage like this will one day find that the defenseless have a mighty redeemer, who will take up their case.
