This chapter shows us how careful of others they had to be.
V.1-11 The poor were to be helped. It says in verse 4 “Save (except) when there shall be no poor among you.” That was a good limit, because the Lord said that such a time would not come (Matt. 26:1111For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. (Matthew 26:11)).
V.12-18 Can you see this story as a beautiful picture of the Lord Jesus as a Servant? He could have gone back to heaven after He had lived His life here on earth. But love kept Him here. He went into death for His Father and for us. And He will remain a Servant forever (Luke 12:3737Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. (Luke 12:37)).
V.19-23 The first-born of the clean animals was to be sacrificed to the Lord.
