Parashat Emor - Pe'ah and First-Fruits

By not specifying specific amounts, the Torah shows that it wishes to emphasize a message other than how much we must give. From Bikurim and Terumah, which he separates from his produce before he takes for himself, we learn that the land-owner must not be the first one to benefit from his field. And from Pe'ah, where he leaves over a corner at the end, we learn the fundamental concept that the land-owner must not be the last one to benefit from his field; others are to benefit from it after him.
