  • Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

  • Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.
  • All hard work brings a profit,

    he humbles and he exalts.
  • John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.”
  • This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’

    and the borrower is slave to the lender.
  • Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
  • This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
    he saved him out of all his troubles.
  • Keep falsehood and lies far from me;
    give me neither poverty nor riches,
    but give me only my daily bread.
  • A person’s riches may ransom their life,
    but the poor cannot respond to threatening rebukes.
  • Because I rescued the poor who cried for help,
    and the fatherless who had none to assist them.
    The one who was dying blessed me;
    I made the widow’s heart sing.
  • What a person desires is unfailing love;
    better to be poor than a liar.
  • If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
  • The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
    He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
    to set the oppressed free.
  • The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
    He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners.
  • Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
    Do not forget the helpless.
