“He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker,
But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy.”
“Blessed is he who considers the poor; the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.” Psalm 41:1-3
“For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always.” Says Jesus in Mark 14:7
My son always said, it’s not whether the man holding the cup for change is right or wrong, it’s what you do about him.
