Deuteronomy 15.9 – Do not take advantage of the seventh year of debt release

As the passage below indicates, the Lord had designated that every seven years, He wanted a release of debts, but He also knew that some people would be tempted to take advantage of that, and not continue their payments as the seventh year drew near,

“Beware lest there be a wicked thought in your heart, saying, ‘The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand,’ and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry out to the LORD against you, and it become sin among you” (Deuteronomy 15.9).

Thus, seven is good, unless one abuses it, then the Lord will hold a person accountable.
