Conspiracy of Kindness #3: Good News for the Poor :: Don Bromley :: August 5, 2007 :: http://www.annarborvineyard.org/ In the Old Testament, the number seven was considered to be a kind of divine number. Every seventh day was to be sacred to God-a Sabbath Day. Every seventh year was to be a "Sabbath Year" a sabbatical year-in which the land was to rest. It was an expression of God's concern for his creation and of God's concern for the poor.
