Deuteronomy 15:11 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.
The Bible tells us to take care of the poor. At the same time, this verse can at first seem a bit harsh. I mean, God is promising that there will always be poor people. There is the lack of basic needs such as food, shelter, or clothing. Also, it is also how they feel because they are poor. They feel needy, neglected, and worthless. The Bible says that there will always be poor people in the land and in the world because there is always someone who will feel needy because they have less than everyone around them. No matter the society, it is a terrible feeling to be at the bottom of the economic ladder. It is our biblical duty to lift these people up, to remind them that they are loved and valued. And this duty is never-ending. Always look for ways to help those who are in need. Follow Jesus’ example.
