I’m reading in Deuteronomy 24 and the surrounding chapters. I’m always impressed by how much concern God demonstrated for the poor, the orphan and widow, the needy, and the victims of all kinds of injustice. God also demonstrates his concern that the needy do not take unfair advantage of others. For example, if I was hungry, I could eat some grapes from your vineyard, but I could not gather any to take home with me. We live in such a “winners and losers” culture. God desires a culture where people work together to help everyone win.
