The genuinely poor people, what about them that made you think? Did God really make provisions for them? In that case, do we now have an element in these provisions? Are there blessings connected that can accrue to us if we fulfill our half and duty in what the Bible directs us to do regarding the poor? Do you really believe it that way? Now ask yourselves and think for the answer on your own.
Are there Scriptures to information us right here? Sure. Have a look at the Scriptures under. They present the sample for coping with the wants of the poor.
7 If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them.
8 Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need.
9 Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: “The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near,” so that you do not show ill will toward the needy among your fellow Israelites and give them nothing. They may then appeal to the Lord against you, and you will be found guilty of sin.
10 Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.
11 There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land.
