I. SHOWING CONCERN FOR NEIGHBORS (Leviticus 19:9-14)

9. “‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest.

10. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the Lord your God.

11. “‘Do not steal. “‘Do not lie. “‘Do not deceive one another.

12. “‘Do not swear falsely by my name and so profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.

13. “‘Do not defraud or rob your neighbor. “‘Do not hold back the wages of a hired worker overnight.

14. “‘Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the Lord.

II. DEMONSTRATING RIGHT ATTITUDES TOWARD NEIGHBORS (Leviticus 19:15-18)

15. “‘Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.

16. “‘Do not go about spreading slander among your people. “‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the Lord.

17. “‘Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt.

III. DEMONSTRATING COMPASSION IN PERSONAL DEALINGS (Leviticus 19:33-37)

33. “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them.

34. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

35. “‘Do not use dishonest standards when measuring length, weight or quantity.
