This is an interesting Jataka tale, that follows a rather unconventional route to convey its message.

There was a time when some monks would go out begging, using the alms to build cells for themselves. The begging became so rampant, that people would run away from them as soon as they saw them in the village.

He called for a meeting of all the monks and learnt that the people felt troubled by the incessant pestering of the monks. He scolded the younger monks and told them the following story.
