Leviticus 25:1 – 7

Questions:

1. If you could take a year off with all expenses paid, what would you like to do?

2. What would be the direct consequences of this year-long sabbath? What effects might such land management have on Israel’s local economy? On their relationship with God?

3. What most excites you about the sabbath year principle? If implemented today, what justice and mercy would be introduced for migrant workers and refugees? Why don’t more nations and communities do this, even on a small-scale?
