set him free

I was struck this morning in my devotions while reading this verse in Deuteronomy. The simplicity of obeying the Lord brings blessing. It is not generally our custom to keep slaves in North America, (though we would be blind to say there is no slavery) but how does this verse apply to me, in this day? Do I hold others in slavery to my un-forgiveness? If I set them free, there is blessing promised. If we give; to the widow, the orphan and others in need, God is faithful to His promise. The need is great. What do I hold in my hand that could set others free?
