15:1-3, this is certainly something we can keep in our day!
“servant” was more of indentured servitude (how this country was built)
Earing a sign of servitude… not a bad thing, we are servants to Yahusha!
In general, as we go through the Torah, we are learning as we go, these “scary 613 laws” that most don’t want to even investigate. Blessed are you for looking into the perfect law of liberty!
