Be Ye…Because I AM…

compassion1We all love to receive the blessing and favor of God in and upon our lives. However, with the blessing and favor of God in and upon our lives comes a great responsibility that is reflected in the ‘…Be ye…because I AM…‘ motif (Lev. 23:22). It is called ethical responsibility. We were created in God’s image and likeness. Therefore, we were meant to be a reflection of Who He is in relation to His creation. In this instance, we are commanded to ‘be ye‘ compassionate to others and help meet the needs of those less fortunate ‘because I AM‘ compassionate towards you.
