1.What should be our attitude to the poor?For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy. (Psalm 72:12,13).
2.For what purpose are the believers anointed?The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, (Luke 4:18)
3.What blessings come to those who consider the poor?..Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness (Psalm 41:1-3).
4. He that gives to the poor gives to God
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. (Proverbs 19:17).
5. God remembers those that Give
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (Hebrews 6:10)
6.How can we do well?Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. (Isaiah 1:17).
7.How should rich men and poor men treat the poor?I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out (Job 29:16).
8.How should we go about our business?Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him (Acts 10:38).
9.What is pure religion?Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows inter affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world (James 1;27).
10.How do we overcome evil?Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him, if he thirst give him drink; for in so doing thou shall heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome with evil but overcome evil with good (Romans 12;20,21)

NOTES:
Our role is to fight poverty by giving and  helping the poor. We maker our lives a living witness and testimony when we help those in need and indeed it is more blessed to give than receive. The world known not how this works as they love to get and get more and more thinkin that life consists of the abundance of things they own. But we follow Christs example in feeding others, the truth is simply this you are never too poor when you have something to give away.
