19 “When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Deuteronomy 24:19 (NKJV)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

God may bless: Ultimately, it is in one’s own best interest to have a concern for the interest of others.

From the Life Application Bible:

God’s people were instructed to leave some of their harvest in the fields so travelers and the poor could gather it. This second gathering, called gleaning, was a way for them to provide food for themselves. Years later, Ruth obtained food for herself and Naomi by gleaning behind the reapers in Boaz’s field, picking up the leftovers (Ruth 2:2). Because this law was being obeyed years after it was written, Ruth, a woman in Christ’s lineage, was able to find food.

10 Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the LORD your God will bless you in everything you do.

Deuteronomy 15:10 (NLT)

When you give to the poor with the right motive; to really and truly help them; it says in God’s Word that He will bless you in everything you do! That means that you’ll be blessed in your health, your family, your job, your friends, your relationships, everything! Everything means everything! All inclusive! Give and be blessed in everything!


35 He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work of the engraver and the designer and the tapestry maker, in blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine linen, and of the weaver—those who do every work and those who design artistic works.

Exodus 35:35 (NKJV)

Whatever skills you have, remember that God is the one who has given them to you. God gives you the skills to do your job. Whatever the job may be, God gives you the skills to do it! So remember to give God the glory for any talents and skills that you have. Why does God do this? So you can’t take the glory that’s due to God for yourself. Remember that pride comes before a fall.
