Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord;
he will reward you for what you have done.
Prov. 19:17 (NCV)
Generous people will be blessed,
because they share their food with the poor.
Prov. 22:9 (NCV)
When you happen on someone who's in trouble or needs help among your people with whom you live in this land that God, your God, is giving you, don't look the other way pretending you don't see him. Don't keep a tight grip on your purse. No. Look at him, open your purse, lend whatever and as much as he needs. Don't count the cost. Don't listen to that selfish voice saying, "It's almost the seventh year, the year of All-Debts-Are-Canceled," and turn aside and leave your needy neighbor in the lurch, refusing to help him. He'll call God's attention to you and your blatant sin.
Deut. 15:7 (The Message)
