**You may eatsome of your neighbor’s vineyard (or corn, etc) while passing by, but

don’t harvest it.                                                               Deuteronomy 23:24,25

**Remember how powerful your tongue is and use it for life– Deuteronomy 24:9

**Pay people on time who do work for you. – Deuteronomy 24:14,15

And in this month of ELUL while the King is in the field, just as we would return someone’s lost animal, the King wants each of us to return to Him, and He promises,

“I will return to you.”                                                             Malachi 3:7
