well... that was an interesting chapter. It tells me God cares about the widow, God cares about our legacy, God cares about our integrity (who we are when noone is looking). That was the part that most applied to me and I will take from here;

"Don't carry two sets of weights with you, one heavy and one light. Don't have two different sets of measures in your house, one large and one small. You must have true and honest weights and measures so that you will live a long life in the land the Lord your God is giving you."

Integrity. Be real. Be honest. Be trustworthy.

"If two brothers are living together on the same property and one of them dies without a son,his widow must not marry outside the family.Instead,her husbands brother must marry her and fulfill the duties of a brother-in-law."v 5

Now nobody would think of marrying their husbands brother if their husband died.What if their husbands brother was already married though? I guess in those times a man could have many wives,but what about now?Nobody could marry their husbands brother if he was already married. In those days things were a lot different than now.
