There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow countrymen who are poor and needy in your land. — GOD
You will not solve the problem with the poor, but by obeying God’s command, you will demonstrate His compassion for them, and perhaps leading a soul to be saved.
The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me. — Jesus
