The Daily Nosh – Deuteronomy 24:19

When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you are not to turn back to get it. It is for the outsider, for the orphan and for the widow – in order that Adonai (the Lord) your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. (TLV) Deuteronomy 24:19

Nosh: As we experience harvest and prosperity in our work, for God’s continued blessing, always reserve a portion for the poor and needy. Not only does God desire for us to cultivate a generous spirit towards those less fortunate than ourselves but in doing so it fosters humility in the giver and serves as a defense against the corrosive and destructive effects of pride.
