Luke 10:4  Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. They were sent out to the city to prepare the way for Jesus to come. They were not to bring money or supplies. They were not even to greet people along the way. This is not a sight seeing trip. They were sent to make people aware that Jesus was coming, they were not to be side tracked from this purpose.

Luke 10:5  And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
Luke 10:6  And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

Enter a home and if peace is there, the presence of Jesus, then stay, if not, it will turn to you again. Take it back. I have entered into homes where peace was evident and other homes where there was no peace found. To leave this home was a relief.

Luke 10:7  And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

Stay put, do not go from house to house as a celebrity or as one choosing the best place for a meal. Stay put and eat what is provided for you.  The laborer is worthy of his hire.   1 Tim 5:18  For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

Luke 10:8  And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:   Again he said, eat whatever strange thing is given you. Bless it and eat it.
Luke 10:9  And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.   Preaching peace, the gospel of the kingdom, followed by signs and wonders. While you are there, heal the sick. It is the will of Jesus and the power of Jesus. This you do where you find peace and are welcomed. What good would it do to heal where unbelief and strife is? God is glorified in healing where there is faith and belief. Isn't that reasonable?
